Detailed Description

Currently the fonts and DPI are set to render quit large, making netbooks and small screens almost unusable if someone doesn't know how to change it, The less changes a user has to make the more they will feel at home

Benefit to Fedora

Readability is everything, however, A sharp and neat look could benefit all of us in Fedora. especially graphic designers.


Isolated change only, It won't effect much or create loads of work but could save users having to edit config files or use gconf-editor (useful for new users and graphic designers)

How To Test


User Experience

Enhanced user experience through a better look, and less changes to be made for the user.



Contingency Plan

If not by default, Add a DPI entry to screen resolution setup under System > Preferences > Hardware > screen resolution Or possibly an added independent configuration window to allow easy DPI setup.
