Hi folks,
I am pretty new here, with only a little Linux knowledge. I use it as main OS at home and backed the cosmo to have a tiny Linux Laptop on the go. As we are still waiitng for the promised nativ linux -support, I played aroudn with userland-app. I finallygot lxde running, but:
- all desktop elements are so tiny, that the system is unusable (forwordprocessing p.e.)
- changing configuration files to correct this fail, as the keyboard doesnt really match. Having a german keyboard, i choose plain german in the installation process (from 10 variants).
- external mouse (via usb-c) does not work

Any help would be appreciated.

Have you tried adjusting the DPI in X? Most applications (using Qt, GTK, etc.) will respect it.

This article has useful information: https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Xorg#D...ay_size_and_DPI
Try for example:
xrandr --dpi 192

Note you will need to restart applications so that they notice the change.
Also note the bit about the optional Xresource
Xft.dpi
You may need to explicitly set this to the same value (e.g. 192)

This doesnt work: "RandR extension missing" Also in reading the arch-wiki entry, I couldnt find a solution.
Any ideas?

Hmmm, if tweaking the Xresource Xft.dpi doesn't work either, then I don't have anything else off the top of my head.
I think you can tweak Xft.dpi using xrdb temporarily, and set it permanently in .XResources once you have something that works, but I'm just going by old memory so don't quote me on that smile.gif
