Xpra: Ticket #347: xpra: PDFs appear very tiny in evince under xpra at 100% zoom

Copied from http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=709008

Package: xpra
Version: 0.9.2+dfsg-1
Severity: normal

Steps to reproduce:

Expected results:

Actual results:

This does not occur without xpra so I guess it is doing something that confuses evince about the size of the screen. Please reassign to evince if you believe that the bug is not in xpra.

This did not occur with xpra 0.3.4+dfsg-1

This does not seem to occur if I use

xpra start --no-daemon --xvfb 'Xvfb +extension Composite -screen 0 3840x2560x24+32 -nolisten tcp -noreset  -auth $XAUTHORITY' :14

so maybe this is somehow related to Xdummy?

"man xpra" still claims that the default value of --xvfb would be

'Xvfb +extension Composite -screen 0 3840x2560x24+32 -nolisten tcp -noreset  -auth $XAUTHORITY'

but this is apparently not the case anymore?

Hmm, I didn't notice that you had commented on the bug since I did not get any email about it. I now tried verifying my email address again, let's hope that fixes it.

Anyways, if I use

xpra start --no-daemon \
   --xvfb '/usr/bin/Xorg -noreset -nolisten tcp +extension GLX \
       +extension RANDR +extension RENDER -logfile /home/lindi/.xpra/Xorg.:14.log \
      -config /etc/xpra/xorg.conf :14' \

then the document is readable but the menu and toolbar text is huge.

Testing xpra.org bug tracker, please ignore this and sorry for the noise...
