I searched that file on places error gave me but did not find, i found that file on github i even wanted to create it but i did not. It was working and i left it.

i used xfce on my nexus and that setting in fonts does not change anything. now i tried this on my nexus 4 and everything is so much better.

1 everything is much bigger and easy to use.
2 terminal in arc linux works

Nexus 4 is amazing device for SFOS and this too. Aliendalvik works on it without issues, google play, video playback, camera everything works. I even think to have nexus 4 as my daily driver not nexus 5 haha

You can use this script, it needs only one argument and it's either 'terminal' or 'startlxde'

You do not need two separate scripts.

HTML Code:
#!/bin/bash

if [[ "$1" != "terminal" ]] && [[ "$1" != "startlxde" ]]; then
	echo "No known args, please pass correct argument."
	echo "for terminal only 'terminal'"
	echo "for GUI 'startlxde'"
	exit
fi

mount --bind /dev /opt/easychroot/Arch/dev
mount --bind /dev/pts /opt/easychroot/Arch/dev/pts
mount --bind /proc /opt/easychroot/Arch/proc
mount --bind /run /opt/easychroot/Arch/run
mount --bind /sys /opt/easychroot/Arch/sys
mount --bind /var/lib/dbus /opt/easychroot/Arch/var/lib/dbus
mount --bind /var/run/dbus /opt/easychroot/Arch/var/run/dbus
mount --bind /tmp /opt/easychroot/Arch/tmp
mount --bind /dev/shm /opt/easychroot/Arch/dev/shm
#mount --bind /etc/ssl/certs /opt/easychroot/Arch/etc/ssl/certs
mount --bind /home/nemo/.config/pulse /opt/easychroot/Arch/home/nemo/.config/pulse
mount --bind /home/nemo /opt/easychroot/Arch/home/nemo/real_home
mount --bind /home/nemo/Downloads /opt/easychroot/Arch/home/nemo/Downloads
mount --bind /home/nemo/android_storage /opt/easychroot/Arch/home/nemo/android_storage
mount --bind /home/nemo/Music /opt/easychroot/Arch/home/nemo/Music
mount --bind /home/nemo/Videos /opt/easychroot/Arch/home/nemo/Videos
mount --bind /home/nemo/Pictures /opt/easychroot/Arch/home/nemo/Pictures
mount --bind /home/nemo/Documents /opt/easychroot/Arch/home/nemo/Documents

if [ $1 == 'terminal' ]; then
	chroot /opt/easychroot/Arch /bin/bash
fi

if [ $1 == 'startlxde' ]; then
	chmod 1777 /dev/shm
	resolution=`cat /sys/class/graphics/fb0/modes | grep -o -P '(?<=U:).*(?=p)'`
	x=${resolution%%x*}
	y=${resolution##*x}
	echo "selected screen resolution"
	echo $y $x
	sleep 3
	chroot /opt/easychroot/Arch bash /usr/share/easychroot/scripts/start_xwayland_user_shell.sh $y $x $1
fi

DPI FIX!

QT_WAYLAND_FORCE_DPI="160" kwin_wayland --xwayland ...

This will make your title bars nice and big. Use whatever value you'd prefer
If you use xfce4, you should also set it in settings->appearance->fonts.


Also, my manager app is coming along well, and should see an alpha release shortly.

Bonus round:

I messed around with Ubuntu Zesty Beta 2 rootfs from http://cdimage.ubuntu.com/ubuntu-bas.../zesty/beta-2/
It works ... mostly.

Unlike Archlinux, chromium does not work.
However, also unlike Archlinux, firefox does work!

To set XFCE dpi from command line:

xfconf-query -c xsettings -p /Xft/DPI -s 160

I have compiled glibc 2.23 using crosstool-ng for those who have 3.0 kernel. In ubuntu 17.04 there is 2.24 version but it requires 3.2 kernel, however 2.23 works.

Also, I had to forget something because you need to create few symlinks from /lib/arm-linux-gnueabihf/*so* to /lib/.

Excellent, thanks. If you get time, could we have a quick Ubuntu setup guide, or would I be better waiting for preflex's installer?

Basically steps are the same like on arch. You have to unpack ubuntu rootfs to directory and install bunch of packages.
The best would be to work together (in github or here) to create well working build and chroot scripts.

I have attached my scripts but they need improving before execute.

For which devices is this an issue?
