Sub_title: Wine fonts
 

If you are tired of tiny fonts in Wine - as is the case by default - simply open the system.reg file (located in /root/.wine) and search for the string LogPixels in the section
[System\\CurrentControlSet\\Hardware Profiles\\Current\\Software\\Fonts]

In order to change the DPI setting from, say, 70 to 85, alter the last two numbers of the following key:

old:
"LogPixels"=dword:00000070
new:
"LogPixels"=dword:00000085

Save the file and start a windows app. Voila, you will have larger fonts!

Hmm -- i've used this great tip many many times for people -- i currently have Wine ver. 1.1.4.3 and new i can't find the section you refer to in the system.reg file. Any ideas?

[EDIT: found an answer by going to MENU>UTILITY>WINE CONFIG, Graphics tab, and adjusting the Screen Resolution]
