Linux HiDPI

Post by rainbert » 12 Jan 2018 20:01

I'm using gephi on an archlinux system with a 4k screen (HiDPI, "retina display" with 285dpi).
When I start gephi everything – the whole GUI – looks terribly small and the program is not really usable.
It seems gephi assumes 96dpi screens and does not read the system's dpi configuration.

- Is there a way to configure gephi to follow the X / KDE dpi settings?
- Does anyone else use gephin on Linux with a HiDPI screen?
- Did I overlook any option such as a GUI scaling factor?
- Actually, this issue has been raised on github in 2015 and the bug got fixed/closed pretty quickly. But I cannot see any effect. Does anybody know bout this? https://github.com/gephi/gephi/commit/0 ... e555895e1c

Thanks a lot.

These hidpi problems were only fixed in Mac OS, unfortunately it's not possible to fix them in Windows and Linux before Java 9

I have not tried Java 9 yet, but please tell us about your experience if you do.
