Hey there,
is anybody familiar with setting a custom DPI?
My new Laptop just arrived with FullHD and 13,3" screen and the stock DPI of 96 is just too small.

What I have tried so far (without success):

1. "xrandr --dpi 120"
In .xinitrc

2. Xft.dpi: 120
In .Xresources

3. Create entry /etc/X11/http://xorg.conf.de/80-monitor.conf

Section "Monitor"
Identifier "<default monitor>"
DisplaySize 294 165
EndSection

Even tho Xorg.0.log shows that on startup the DPI is always set to 96.

Any clues?

Regards

Just updated an old thinkpad with archlinux which has no update seen for about 1 year and it quite works!  The mini pacman C-o is eating package by package quite nice. But keep in mind to do pacman -Sy archlinux-keyring first otherwise the pgp war begins ...

Hi people after a lot of trial and errors and many ideas from you Arch gurus here on this community about not having permission to mount an internal drive in thunar when using it with i3wm I have finally worked it out.
Installing gvfs with thunar-volman doesn't work at all. I tried udiskie and that wouldn't work. Installed polkit and got a script from the Arch wiki and still it wouldn't mount. By this time my brain was ready to explode and my fingers were blistered from all the typing lol...
I installed xfce-polkit-git from the AUR then added the drive to my fstab and now it will mount automatically in thunar and not ask for your password at all. So if anyone is having trouble this is the remedy to it.
Take care people....

Sorry, for posting this here, but I have a problem with my Acer laptop.
It boots and stay stuck in the Acer logo.
Pressing f2 to enter bios or f12 to select bootable device doesn't work.
I have tried booting without HDD but that also don't help.

Charging light and power and WiFi light come on normally, and charging also works normally.

Thx for the advice

Hi folks!

My brother (+Fernando Fernandez) and I have working on a Gnome Alpha Versions repository for Arch Linux. It's just for testing purpose. We have already package and upload all packages that release the first alpha of this development cycle. All that we could found, due to the lack of the official announcement, so maybe there are someone missing. If you found one, poke us, so we can package it and upload it to the repo.

We'll update every package as new alpha release are done.

This is our first experience on packaging Gnome, so be nice, please ;)

We only package them on x86_64 arch, due to lack of time and will to build them on i686 too. If there is any volunteer to build them, we'll gladly opload them to the repo.

We hope that this could help to make easier to test alpha releases of Gnome.

If you want to try it, at your own risk, you should add this lines to you /etc/pacman.conf:

[gnome-devel]
Server = http://softwareperonista.com.ar/repo/archlinux/gnome-devel/x86_64

It works flawlessly, so is not so terribly. Of course it's only for testing purpose.

Anyone else having streaming video playback issues? Freezing with the sound still going, audio repeating, garbled picture? Happens in all the browsers with pretty much all the Flash plugins. I'm lost as to how to fix it.

pacman is a utility which manages software packages in Linux. It uses simple compressed files as a package format, and maintains a text-based package database (more of a hierarchy), just in case some hand tweaking is necessary. pacman does not strive to "do everything.

I just installed Arch and let me say it is AWESOME. I am wondering how can I make a multi-line bashrc prompt like seen in parrot security os. I personally think this looks cool and I woud like to re-create something like it.

I don't use conky but argb has 4 channels so maybe red is ff0000ff or ffff0000 depending if the alpha channel is at the start or the end of the string?
