HiDPI for Helium

Hi,

as I'm "lucky" to have a HiDPI display machine at my hands I installed Helium alpha6 and made some tweaks for the 3200x1800px sized screen.
What I did in brief:

  • backported HiDPI stuff from upstream Greybird

  • resized window stuff

  • added appropriate size values.

For more details see the README. You can get the whole theme stuff and installation instructions at Github.
As this is a first tryout so to say I'd be happy to get any comments and/or bug reports especially from people having a HiDPI display.

Cheers!

Great, thanks for sharing this.

I'll make sure to use these settings on my next install smile

Re: HiDPI for Helium

I am glad to see this. I modified the base Beam theme for my Surface Pro IV but it is a pretty rough draft.

Re: HiDPI for Helium

I would quite like it if we added the Beam-HiDPI folder to our BunsenLabs theme package, would that be OK?

Re: HiDPI for Helium

Yes. I think it is time we start considering HiDPI screens as best as we are able. It has been on my mind, I just did not consider it a priority, given all the other irons I have in the fire  big_smile

Re: HiDPI for Helium

For me it's okay if more people have tested it. I only have one HiDPI device so there might be issues on smaller/different resolutions.
Given that HiDPI is often a mess in various distributions I want to avoid replicating the with BL. ;-)

Re: HiDPI for Helium

^ I'll test it out on the Surface Pro IV tomorrow morning. It runs at 2880 x 1600 native, I believe.

Re: HiDPI for Helium

I've been testing this out on my Surface Pro IV running through a VirtualBox instance and I must say that so far, it is looking great!

Re: HiDPI for Helium

If nobody reports any problems in a day or two, I'll add bunsen-beam-hidpi to bunsen-themes so it will be available as an option. Thanks vinzv!

Re: HiDPI for Helium

I made two pull requests (bunsen-themes, bunsen-conky) to make integration easier.
For tint2 I wasn't sure where to place the pull request? tint2/master branch?

Your tint2rc can be added to /usr/share/bunsen/skel/.config/tint2/ via the bunsen-configs package, here is the relevant page:

https://github.com/BunsenLabs/bunsen-co … nfig/tint2

I would call it "tint2rc-hidpi" but the choice is yours wink

Thanks!
