Font size in Ubuntu (XBMCBuntu)

To change the font size in XMBCBuntu (formerly known as XBMC Live) you have to edit the /etc/X11/xorg.conf file.

Login to the machine via ssh (and enter your password):

ssh xbmc@IP_ADDRESS

Once you logged in enter the following command (you will be prompted for your password):

sudo nano /etc/X11/xorg.conf

Afterwards a kind of text editor will be opened and add the following line to the “Monitor” section.

Option "DPI" "96 x 96"

Close the editor via “CTRL + X” and save the file
