DPI


Introduction

We try to synchronize the DPI from the client to the server, so that applications will render with the correct settings and "look right" on the client.

Caveats:

  • DPI support is much improved in version 0.16. With previous versions, your mileage may vary
  • with X11, there are far too many places where the DPI can be looked up, many places where it can be overriden - it is hard to get right
  • for virtualized "hardware DPI" which some applications calculate from the virtual monitor dimensions, you will need a patched wiki/Xdummy driver and wiki/FakeXinerama
  • many applications will not reload the DPI settings, so they must be started after the client connects to get the correct DPI value
