I'm also suffering a tiny fonts problem on an Asus Ux330u with an QHD 
screen. the fonts on the taskbar (kicker) and the font on the menu 
window of Trinity Control Center' are miniscule as are fonts on 
applications like LibreOffice, GIMP, Pan, etc. as far as I can tell, 
it affects all apps, whether Gnome or KDE.

the thing also boots to Gnome (Gnome or so-called Debian Desktop 
Environment and Cinnamon) and to Windows 10, no problem with fonts. if 
I were only sure which config files to steal from Gnome!

xdpyinfo |grep -B2 resolution -->
dimensions: 3200x1800 pixels (846x476 millimeters)
resolution: 96x96 dots per inch

I've tried various settings in fonts enabling and disabling dpi. does 
seem to do best with
120 DPI

using exegnu version.

advice please.
