I can't seem to get anything on gtk3 although it looks like some 
programs invoke it.

I wrote that I wasn't sure what the display size should be to which 
you responded:

I tried this value and the fonts were grotesquely large on the login 
page but once logged in I saw no difference.

what I (think I) am missing is the correct values for HorizSync and 
VertRefresh - I couldn't infer them from what you wrote or from the 
link; I used the ones in the template without success (forget now 
what happened).

I fooled a bit with HorizSync and VertRefresh and at one point I got a 
fair font size but Horizontal was too short. not sure if this is 
what I should play with and if so, how to calculate the correct 

am I right that I should fool with HorizSync and VertRefresh? I have 
also entered:

Option	"PreferredMode"	"3200x1800"

any further guidance welcome.
