General question, fonts and resolution

Post by caibbor » Thu Apr 19, 2018 9:19 pm

I've been using CodeLite for years, staring at it inches from my face for days and months on-end. I am looking into getting a monitor with a higher resolution so that I can have more code on screen at once, and not have to squint at font because the aliasing doesn't work at such high resolutions.

My laptop has a measly 15.6" screen and something like 1440x900 pixel screen, so my main monitor is actually an LCD TV. It works well except that the resolution sucks.

My questions are,

1.) What monitor / resolution do you use, Eran?

2.) I am aware that you don't work on the fonts library or anything, but will the fonts look decent on an Ubuntu distribution on a 4k monitor in CodeLite?

3.) Any other recommendations.

Thanks.

1) I use samsung 28" 4k resolution, I have configured the DPI to 150
2) I am using Fira Code fonts https://github.com/tonsky/FiraCode

I am using dark theme, easier to stare the code for hours

Ooh! Code fonts! Didn't know that was a thing.

Thank you, definitely looking into that.
