Title: Nvidia probs
Post by: Tea on August 02, 2015, 11:06:31 am
Installed P6 to my TV/media machine updating with a new install  from xfce 12.04 - the only problem I have is the Nvidia driver makes ALL fonts way too small.
Reinstated xorg driver after stumbling around the small  menu. Is there a fix to the fonts and the menu icons being too small when using the nvida driver?
Connected to tv via hdmi - no monitor.
Trying to use Nvidia driver 331.113 ... updates

I think there's something in the Nvidia settings control panel to fix this, but I don't remember where.  I'd look for it if I was using my computer with Nvidia graphics, but I'm not.
