HiDPI note to self #x

🕧︎ - 2017-08-13

To scale most things (Firefox, Sakura, GTK-apps): set Xft.dpi: 150 in, say, /etc/X11/Xresources/xft.

This makes Chromium's windows display way too big fonts, however, so to fix that add --force-device-scale-factor=1.5 to CHROMIUM_FLAGS in /etc/chromium.d/default-flags.

Adding -dpi 150 to the call to X in, say, /etc/lightdm/lightdm.conf doesn't seem to influence anything.
