Hi All

While the Gemini's 2160x1080 is very nice, my old eyes have trouble seeing it (and using it with touch screen).

The only option in 'Monitor Settings' is maximum - is there a way to run in, say 1080x540?

Also, any other tips for making it more touch friendly?

Thanks for any ideas smile.gif

Two suggestions:

1. use a one of those capacitive rubber tipped pens.
2. assign keyboard shortcuts to actions, taking advantage of having a keyboard!

For Chromium or Firefox, you can install keyboard navigation addons. I use vimium and vimperator respectively.

In lxqt settings you could select larger fonts, resulting in larger menus. Maybe there are more interesting settings.

try
"xrandr --dpi 144"
and then open an app to see if it makes a difference (you'll need to restart an app for changes to appear)

I haven't used lxqt but you could try influencing QT envs e.g.
"export QT_AUTO_SCREEN_SCALE_FACTOR=1"
