Linux Slick on Windows 10 bash
« on: September 11, 2016, 12:27:09 am »
Seems to work  :)
I installed XMing xwindows server, and vs runs under Linux on Windows 10.
Cool.

Did you get anti-aliasing to work properly? I am using SlickEdit on a Linux server and displaying on XMing on Windows 10, using a Philips 43" 4K monitor, and the fonts look _horrible_, regardless of the "anti aliasing" checkbox in the fonts options dialog...

I didn't try - I was just experimenting with bash on windows.

I figured it out; I had to modify the windows properties to disable scaling on high-DPI screens (in the compatibility tab). After that, I had to specify xming.exe -dpi 160 to ensure the fonts wouldn't be too small. The combination fixed things.
