Re: LibreOffice patches for HiDPI

Glad you liked it as it took a third as much time as the programming so far. I could have talked more about interesting coding issues I ran into, but people can also read the comments in the diffs ;-) Most of the LibreOffice developers program on Ubuntu, Red Hat or Suse, but Arch works just fine. I did find ways to improve the wiki a bit.

It was effort but rewarding along the way. Looking forward to hopefully getting some support into 4.2.1. if someone is passionate about KDE who wants to make LibreOffice look good on HiDPI screens, I can point them to some code. I may work on that and do some testing on Xfce, but I also want to reserve time for issues in the diffs I've already made!

Re: LibreOffice patches for HiDPI

The patches finally got into 4.2.3. If you've got a HiDPI screen, check it out when it gets uploaded to the repos in the next day or so. There is a known issue with incorrect detection of some lo-res screens on KDE, but there is a workaround and a fix will go into 4.2.4: http://cgit.freedesktop.org/libreoffice … 906ecc37f2

I just wrote a Part 2 of the article of actually shipping the patches. For anyone who liked the first part, here is the rest of the story:
