edit your xinitrc file
usually located in /etc/X11 folder

thanks
i managed to do it with modifying this file.
/usr/X11R6/lib/X11/xdm/Xservers

$ps -ef | grep dpi
root 1615 135 0 02:07 ? 00:00:26 /usr/X11R6/bin/X -dpi 100 -auth /var/run/xauth/A:0-rNRKAs

by the way.. my applications don't seem to use 100 instead of 75?

my main concern is font in galeon browser.

galeon font information gives
-Adobe-Helvetica-Medium-R-Normal--12-120-75-75-P-67-ISO8859-1

which looks like 75..

what do i do?

thanks again

i don't know about galeon
but for availability of 100 dpi fonts
check the xfs (x font server) config file
it should point to 100 dpi font folder
check man xfs
keep posted

less /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fs/config

clone-self = on
use-syslog = off
catalogue = /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/misc/,/usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/Speedo/,/usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/Ty
pe1/,/usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/CID/,/usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/75dpi/,/usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/100dpi/
error-file = /var/log/fs-errors
# in decipoints
default-point-size = 120
default-resolutions = 75,75,100,100

# font cache control, specified in KB
cache-hi-mark = 2048
cache-low-mark = 1433
cache-balance = 70

maybe you should change the default resolutions
that should work
