Ticket #10565 (closed defect: fixed)

Opened 4 years ago

Last modified 4 years ago

DPI grows by approx 1px on each rotation

Reported by: martin.langhoff Owned by: jnettlet
Priority: normal Milestone: 11.2.0-M3
Component: x window system Version: Development build as of this date
Keywords: Cc: dsd, erikos
Action Needed: code Verified: no
Deployments affected: Blocked By:
Blocking: #10453



  • Using 10.1.3 series (build 360 tested)
  • open Terminal.xo (or Gnome Terminal) - run xdpyinfo | grep resolution
  • Press the rotate button a few times
  • Run xdpyinfo | grep resolution again
  • After 8 rotations, open Browse.xo, pages will render with large fonts

This stems from a buglet in the xserver/xrandr DPI calculations when rotation happens. It gets exposed once #10453 (which describes a different DPI issue) is fixed.
