[SOLVED] XFCE4-Panel: main font

Post by aamigal » Wed Oct 25, 2017 9:55 am

Hello everybody

I hope that's the right sub forum:

I installed my new ultra hd TV as monitor with 3840 x 2160 pixel at all. I found the most settings for adjudsting readable font sizes. But one setting I didn't found: the size of the panel's main font.


Here some infos about my system:


Processor 4x Intel(R) Core(TM)2 Quad CPU Q9505 @ 2.83GHz
Memory 12011MB (7108MB used)
Operating System Linux Mint 18.2 Sonya

Operating System

Kernel Linux 4.4.0-53-generic (x86_64)
Compiled #74-Ubuntu SMP Fri Dec 2 15:59:10 UTC 2016

Has anybody an idea where to set up a readable font size?

Thanks in advance --AMG

EDIT: problem solved!

In between I went thru several dialog boxes and I found this "workaround"

Menu -> All Settings -> Appearance -> Fonts -> DPI

There I did a change from 96 dpi -> 48 dpi -> and back to 96 dpi Result: Everything is fine now !!!
