Good question, and one for which I have no answer. I was on chat with some of the Linux-for-Gemini developers as I was setting up the machine, and I mentioned that changing the dpi from 4XX to 2XX might make my tired old eyes better able to see stuff on the screen. Whereupon it was said that as shipped it had a x2 zoom factor built in.

I am most very interested in this, and have no experience with it. I changed DPI long ago (how long? Well, it was in xf86config) and I think maybe in a KDE setting once or twice. But I know nothing of a zoom knob or where I might experiment with it. Any advice/help with it would be appreciated.
