Editor does not correctly respect DPI settings (Linux/Xfce) #1531
When the system DPI is set to a custom value, UI text respects that setting, but editor text is incorrect.
Steps to Reproduce
In Xfce > Settings Manager > Appearance, open the Fonts tab and set the DPI setting to a value of 120. Start Komodo Edit.
Editor text is rendered at 120 dpi.
Editor text is far larger than would be the case for 120dpi resolution.
Komodo Edit, version 9.3.2, build 16460, platform linux-x86_64.
Note when working with HiDPI on linux I've found that different distro's/window managers do HiDPI different ways. I think for now we should focus exclusively on the most popular one (Ubuntu/unity) and after that is working properly we can look into other ones, if they still have issues.
Note this ticket is not about HiDPI, just about non-standard DPIs. Komodo 10's ability to handle non-standard DPIs in Ubuntu/Unity works well (at least on non-HiDPI screens -- I don't have a HiDPI screen to test on). The next order of operations would be to look at using Xresources or XFCE settings to change DPI.
