[Scilab-users] Tiny fonts in linux

Hello,

I have just re-installed Scilab 6.0.1 (mainly to experiment with Xcos) on my laptop running ArchLinux.  The trouble is that the size of all system fonts (such as menus and help files) on my high definition screen are tiny - almost unreadable.  I believe this is an issue with java, and not with scilab itself - but is there any known way of fixing it?

I can change the font in the command window, but I can't seem to change any of the system fonts.

Thank you,
Al

Hello,

We have the same problem with Retina displays on Mac OSX. Yes, it is a problem with Java and the detection of the DPI of the display.

Re: Tiny fonts in linux


Can you check that you have also the same zooming problem (in addition to the tiny font) ?

Re: Tiny fonts in linux

Many thanks.  I did read yesterday that this problem was supposedly fixed in
java ver 9 on linux, so I'm downloading jre10 now.  I don't know if the java
runtime libraries are hardcoded into Scilab, or whether Scilab makes use of
system libraries.  But I'll experiment and report back, and I'll also check
that zooming issue.

But first - catch up on some marking!

Many thanks,
Al
