Font size in menu bar

  • Hi
    may be somebody have an idea or already find it how …

    Ubuntu 20.04 Display settings: 2560x1440 (16:9) Fractional scaling 150%
    All Apps have the desire font size on menus, but not Notepad++
    I can modify document font size but MENU FONT SIZE is really SMAAAALLLL :)
    Any ideas

  • @Jago-Jago said in Font size in menu bar:

    By All Apps you mean other wine apps? Or native linux apps?

  • Hi, both native or not work OK


  • @Jago-Jago

    I’m sorry but I don’t understand your answer.
    Npp is a Windows application.
    To run it on Ubuntu, or any other Linux derivative, you need Wine.
    So no, Npp is not a native application on Ubuntu.

  • I’m running ver 7.8.9 on my ubuntu NB. (no Wine)

    Linux (and thus Ubuntu) cannot run Windows apps natively. So either you have a Wine-alternative (maybe modern Ubuntu comes with Wine or something similar pre-installed, so you don’t realize you’re using it? I don’t have experience with Ubuntu, so I don’t know), or someone somewhere has done some miraculous coding that I don’t know about to be able to repackage a Windows executable which relies on the MS-specific Win32 API to work in linux (though I have no clue how).

    So my requests/questions would be:

    1. Please post the ?-menu’s Debug Info, which tells us a lot more useful information than the About dialog you pasted
    2. How did you install Notepad++? Where did the download come from?

    like @PeterJones already said, if you check your debug-info you will
    see that npp uses Wine like here on my manjaro test system.
