Description Lukas Sommer 2011-05-08 18:22:13 UTC
Version:           1.0 (using KDE 4.6.0) 
OS:                Linux

Font DPI isn't fully scalable

Use case:

You want to use KDE on your plasma television which is quite big (let's say 42
inch) and has a high resolution (let's say 1920x1080). You want to sit quite a
distance away (let's say 6 meters).

We use non-standard display sizes more and more. So it is important that KDE
supports this usage better than it currently does.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
Open the font configuration page in systemsettings.

Actual Results:  
You can choose between "Disabled", "96 DPI" and "120 DPI".

Expected Results:  
It should be possible to choose arbitrary values for the font DPI. So you can scale the fonts easily.

OS: Linux (i686) release
Compiler: gcc
