I have the same exact problem in floating window mode using version 4.2.22 on Red Hat EL6 with Window 7 client.
FYI, there is no trouble report for this in the knowledge base.
I want to run in “floating window mode” with 100 DPI.
I’m only a user and don’t have admin privileges on the server. Therefore I can’t create any files in the /usr/NX/etc directory.
Anyway, Xft.dpi can be changed on-the-fly (e.g. via the gnome-control-center). The X core font (xfs) DPI setting is something different and I believe it can only be specified when the X server starts. I thought the DPI settings in node.cfg controlled this instead of Xft.dpi. The reason I want to change it is because I run EDA tools, many of which use the legacy X font system instead of Xft/fontconfig. I think some of these tools assume 100 dpi for their default font sizes and don’t look right when the DPI is 75 instead.
If what you are saying is true, then how do I, as a user, set the X server DPI setting?
As a side note, I know that xrandr has a ‘–dpi’ switch, supposedly allowing modification of the X server DPI without restarting, but it doesn’t seem to work, at least in NX.
For reference, my NX session is “floating window” style and starts up with an xterm. I have checked the X server DPI setting with the following command:
> xdpyinfo | grep dot
resolution: 75×75 dots per inch
I can’t figure out a way to change it.
