02:55 fsociety joined #deepin
03:20 ^Eli joined #deepin
03:21 ^Eli Hello everyone.
03:53 vodkode joined #deepin
03:58 ^Eli Is it possible to run my monitor at maximum 4K resolution and then use some kind of DPI scaling on Deepin?
03:58 vodkode I had trouble Eli
03:59 vodkode the issue wasn't with Deepin it was with the monitor res not being recognized
03:59 ^Eli I can't find a setting for DPI scaling, all I can do is use a smaller resolution but then things look slightly blury.
03:59 vodkode yes
03:59 vodkode thats the issue I had as well
03:59 vodkode and it wasn't actually 4K res
04:00 vodkode the issue is with the monitor not being properly recognized
04:00 vodkode it wont set the res properly
04:00 ^Eli This really sucks.
04:00 vodkode its a VERY complex fix from what I saw
04:00 vodkode yeah it does
04:00 vodkode what kind do you have?
04:00 vodkode mine was a samsung
04:00 ^Eli Well it supports my monitor's maximum resolution with no problem.
04:00 vodkode but is it ACTUALLY that resolution
04:00 ^Eli Mime is a Samsung too.
04:00 vodkode when you pull up an image
04:01 vodkode does the image display properly or is it blurry as well
04:01 vodkode the issue is its not ACTUALLY giving you 4K
04:01 vodkode that was the problem I had
04:01 ^Eli No the image looks sharp, everything looks like it should but in 4K everything looks so small, very hard to read txt etc.
04:01 ^Eli so I need to scale like I do in Windows.
04:01 vodkode okay, then you are in luck
04:02 ^Eli scaling still maintains absolute sharpness while making everything bigger and easier to read.
04:02 vodkode yes
04:02 ^Eli Yeah, but I can't find a setting for scaling.
04:02 vodkode have you enlarged the dock and so on?
04:02 ^Eli yeah.
04:03 vodkode hmmm well, not to knock deepin, I like the distro and all, but you may end up having to go with something more configurable ultimately
04:03 ^Eli Dock is in Large mode when I try the 4K resolution, but still all fonts look too small and some windows and apps too.
04:03 vodkode you'll want to mod fonts
04:04 vodkode yeah you'll need to be able to turn up the font sizes with AA
04:04 vodkode modify window settings/theme
04:04 vodkode change up a lot of settings
04:04 ^Eli I tried changing font size to the maximum with the control panel in Deepin but the fonts won't change for some reason.
04:05 ^Eli is that on the sidebar settings?
04:05 ^Eli I think that's where I went to before, but let me double check.
04:06 vodkode yeah Eli, I love deepin but its not hugely configurable
04:06 vodkode congrats on your samsung working though
04:06 vodkode what model is it ?
04:06 vodkode and what graphics card?
04:07 ^Eli Nope, its a no go.
04:07 ^Eli Fonts won't change
04:07 ^Eli no matter what I put there on the font settings.
04:08 vodkode yeah
04:08 vodkode sorry to hear it
04:08 ^Eli https://realact.net/?page_id=13
04:08 ^Eli Thanks vodkode I appreciate your help too.
04:08 ^Eli that's my machine.
04:10 vodkode nice setup
04:10 vodkode I do content creation on linux, audio/video/graphics and I recently switched to ubuntu studio, for most of my systems I run mint though
04:11 vodkode I love deepin, its a great distro and I've setup family and friends with it, the issue seems to always be the lack of configurability for me
04:18 ^Eli I'm sorry, got a phone call.
04:18 ^Eli and thank you.
04:19 ^Eli Yeah, I was trying ZorinOS but after looking at many of the reviews I decided to try it.
04:19 ^Eli I'm impressed so far, I think it's the most user friendly Linux ever, very nice for newbies etc.
04:20 ^Eli but if you are a person who likes to tweak your system etc, it's not configurable at all  unfortunately.
04:22 vodkode Yeah
04:22 vodkode I have a very set way that I setup my systems after years of using
04:22 vodkode I always install docky or plank
04:23 vodkode I mod my app icons so I recognize them - just the apps I routinely use
04:25 ^Eli That's awesome.
04:26 ^Eli I in fact had not tried Linux for ages.
04:26 ^Eli just decided to give Linux another try after all these years, and so far I have noticed an improvement.
04:27 ^Eli Docky and Plank I suppose are dock replacements ?
04:28 vodkode yes
04:28 vodkode Linux is really in its golden age right now
04:29 vodkode unless you're a gamer, there really isn't anything it cant do
04:30 vodkode What do you do with your system? do you game primarily or ?
04:40 ^Eli No, I'm really not a gamer.
04:41 ^Eli I basically do word processing, web browsing, chatting, checking mail, etc.
04:42 ^Eli nothing special, so yeah Linux can be used easily for these purposes.
04:42 ^Eli Where are you from vodkode ?
04:42 vodkode small town north of tampa in FL, USA
04:42 ^Eli oh wow, we are not so far.
04:43 ^Eli lol
04:43 vodkode for word processing I would suggest checking out WPS office
04:43 vodkode its free
04:43 ^Eli I thought you were gonna say, Europe, South America etc.
04:43 vodkode oh where ya at?
04:43 ^Eli I'm in Hialeah, FL.
04:43 vodkode no hah
