Login Window Very small font
#1
I'm not sure whats going on here but when I logout all the text on the login window is so small you can't read it. It's normal size when logged in and using Ubuntu but when I logout its very very small. Any ideas?

I'm guessing you mean the main login window in ubuntu.

The reason your fonts are tiny is probably because you have it plugged into your TV.

The graphics card is detecting the size and resolution of the TV from the EDID information from the video connection. This is telling it that you have something like 42 dpi, so in order to be clever the X Server decides that the fonts need to be small ( in pixels ) so that they are the right size ( in millimetres/inches ).

Put this in the "Monitor" section of /etc/X11/xorg.conf

Option "DPI" "96x96"

To force the monitor to pretend to be 96dpi.
