HiveOS contrib tips #1 terminal window size and DPI fonts for HDMI/TV

  1. after boot the terminal window is maximized, i don’t like that then edit /hive/etc/xinitrc
    at the end where:
    [roxargs="–replace --maximize"]
    delete “maximize”
    save , at terminal run #killall xinit (this kill any X) then #xinit

  2. for any reason the title bar and menus fonts are too small on my HDMI/TV
    past i edited manually xorg.conf adding [Option “DPI” “100 x 100”] to Device and Screen sections every boot.
    to make persistent , edited /hive/bin/xorg-conf under [----$busid----] before [$emulated_monitor_string]

[Section “Device”
Identifier “Device$devidx”
Driver “nvidia”
Option “Coolbits” “31”
BusID “PCI:$busid_dec”
Option “DPI” “100 x 100”

Section “Screen”
Identifier “Screen$devidx”
Device “Device$devidx”
Option “Coolbits” “31”
Option “DPI” “100 x 100”
