    Hi.

    Yesterday I downloaded from www.hexxeh.net both ISOs and Windows Disk Imager from Microsoft.

    Following the successful installation of Lime on a 4gb USB 2.0 flash drive I was able to boot to Lime, sign in, and access the internet.

    For the most part, Lime ran smoothly but I had a major problem with text size in the menus; it was much too small to read.
    Web pages rendered properly and the text in those pages appeared normal, but whenever I accessed a menu for options the text and entire frame of the menu box was tiny.
    This occurred with the OS setup menus or those menus accessed directly from the Chrome browser.

    Has anyone else experienced this behavior and if so, can you offer a remedy ?


    ps: My system resolution is set at 1360x768 and I am using a Sony LCD TV for my monitor.

    Thanks in advance for any advice.

    Hey wtsinnc,
    I used vanilla for a while and didn't have any problems with the text. I'm on a 15" laptop running 1024. Maybe try running it on another monitor or changing you resolution. I can't remember if your able to change in the text size in the config menu.
