The dpi parameter: where is it set?


Hi!
Since some X fonts of my Debian Sarge are extremely small, I suspect the dpi parameter is set too low. Could anybody tell me which file should I edit to enlarge it? Thanks!

If you are using KDE then in the file /etc/kde3/kdm/kdmrc you want to change this line.

Code:
grep -i serverargs /etc/kde3/kdm/kdmrc
ServerArgsLocal=-dpi 100 -nolisten tcp
For other desktops I have no clue.
