Letters being cut off

I have Doomsday engine on my linux system. I run Arch Linux with Plasma 5. I have a pretty odd issue. Some words and letters are getting cut off in the interface here. I will attach a screenshot so what exactly is going on can be seen. I guess my question is. What are font/fonts that the engine uses? Thanks in advance for any suggestions.



  • One thing that can cause this is a font size setting of “medium or large” on your computer.

    Go to:

    Control Panel > Appearance & Personalization > Display >

    Now check what you have your font size set to.

    Default or 100% might fix this.
  • It looks like the font metrics are not being reported accurately. (On Linux all the text is rendered via Qt APIs.)

    One thing to try is the -fontsize option, which scales the font sizes. You could try for instance "-fontsize 0.8" on the command line when launching doomsday.

    Another option that might affect things is -dpi. Especially on Linux the desktop DPI factor is not necessarily automatically detected. This option does scale all the UI elements, though. You could try, for instance, "-dpi 1.5".
