My 13.3" notebook's revolution is 1600*900, so in Fedora16 the fonts size is very small and hard to see. I want to know how to change dpi to 120. Help me
The best way to control text size on your Desktop is to use the
Open a terminal window and run the following:
gsettings list-recursively | grep text-scaling-factor
The default text-scaling-factor should be 1.0 ant your output should be something like this:
org.gnome.desktop.interface text-scaling-factor 1.0
Now if you want to make your Desktop and its text a little larger just run the following command:
gsettings set org.gnome.desktop.interface text-scaling-factor '1.2'
The change is immediate and permanet so if you want to rollback to the previous settings you must rerun the command passing
'1.0' as parameter.
Of course if you want larger text you just have to increase the scaling factor.

Left click the Universal Access icon (upper right corner on your desktop assuming you are using f16 gnome-3) and turn on the Large text button.
Is it large enough? If not try running the following from a command prompt
then select Universal Access. In Seeing tab you will find a drop down list called Text size.

Thanks. The first and the third answers are better. gnome-tweak-tool is power and easy, so I use it to change fonts.
