Hello!

I'm excited to learn LMMS, but the font size is showing up quite small on my computer! I would appreciate learning a way to enlarge the text in some way, some bits are very straining to read :P

I'm running Win10 with LMMS version 1.1.3
Mr. AlejandroMurgia's screencap looks like what I'm seeing. If a solution has come up within the past few years then I would be grateful to hear about it.

Thank you and have a good day.

Thank you friend and merry Christmas!
The screen resolution seems to be working better now on this latest version of LMMS. I appreciate the help!

Hey, I downloaded the .AppImage 1.2 version of lmms for linux. The themes directory is set to this weird "data:/themes/default/" in a read-only filesystem, so I can't change the syle.css file. I've tried to set it to other directories many times, every time I close the program and open it again, it's reverted back.

My computer didn't have the "default" /usr/share/lmms/themes on it. Maybe this is because of the .AppImage packaging format? Anyway, my lmms seems to be unconfigurable. If anybody knows how to solve this, I would appreciate it a lot.

What do you mean with a read only file system ?

Maybe you try to change some file as a normal user, but should do it as root ?

Sorry for the long time it took me to answer.

I tried it with root user, it's not that. It seems lmms creates a read-only filesystem every time it runs, mounts it somewhere and puts it's config files there. So, to the computer, it's like the config files are in an outside storage device that can't be written on, only read from. I haven't found the default config files anywhere else.

Nono -if you have that kind of crazyness, then it is some local setting on your system. LMMS only have one config-file. It is the infamous 'Dot-file'.
To handle that
https://lmms.io/wiki/index.php?title=LM ... h_Settings
I haven't found the default config files anywhere else.
As i said no other 'config-file' however most in LMMS is customizeable through CSS, but you need to know how to code in CSS, to be able to make usable changes, and you need at code-editor or pad for the job. The file is named style.css
eg
..lmms/data/themes/default/style.css

Besides that, since you are new in Forum
