[Bug 1382291] Re: Account creation during first boot of an OEM image needs to scale based on resolution


Shih-Yuan; the "ubiquity_hidpi.patch" patch you attached doesn't seem to
be directly related to HiDPI support. Maybe I'm misreading, but those
seem to be nothing more than some of the changes that aren't yet in

As for the changes to unity-settings-daemon, I can only let you finish
those since there seemed to be some logic missing to properly calculate
the scaling factor. Have you considered Sebastien's option of applying
the gtk scaling factor directly from u-s-d if we can't detect unity in
the session?

I'll make the ubiquity task Incomplete for now; I'm not saying we can't
apply the changes in your patch, but I just couldn't see the relation
with HiDPI scaling.

** Changed in: ubiquity (Ubuntu)

  Account creation during first boot of an OEM image needs to scale

Bug description:
  The ubiquity window size display in HiDPI screens is small.

  The new gSettings to scale GTK applications (and their corresponding
  settings in System Settings) work great, but this does not help for
  the account creation (first boot) for users buying a pre-install

  We would need changes in Ubiquity to:

   * Probe the monitor to get resolution information
   * Re-scale the ubiquity window using the corresponding gsetting (com.ubuntu.user-interface scale-factor) based on resolution

  We would need the changes to be backported to Trusty as well.

  [Test Case]
  1. Install image on a system with HiDPI panel
  2. Check the ubiquity window size displayed on screen

  Expected Result:
  The window size should be reasonable for user to read the content.

  Actual Result:
  The window size is small and user is hard to read the content.
