db_input medium xbase-clients/default_100dpi || true

Template: xbase-clients/default_100dpi
Type: note
Description: xinit starts the X server using 100 dpi.
 You should be aware that, by default, xinit (and thus startx) starts the X
 server using the "-dpi 100" argument, which forces the X server to treat
 the display as having 100 dots per inch.  This particularly affects the
 visible font size.  Another common default is 75 dpi; some font
 rasterizers do not deal well with dpi settings other than 75 or 100.
 The "-dpi 100" setting can be changed or removed by editing
