Re: [tracecompass-dev] High-DPI icons

Hi! Here are some extra instructions if you need to test this.

In Ubuntu, there's a scaling setting in the "Screen Resolution" settings (at least in Ubuntu 16.04). You can also launch with an environment variable to control this more manually. This seems to be a more reliable way on Ubuntu 14.04. For example:

GDK_DPI_SCALE=2.0 ./eclipse

On Windows 10, it's in the Display settings.

On Mac, it's 2x by default on Retina Macs and can be changed in the "Displays" system preferences.

Hello Trace Compass contributors!

I would just like to point out that if you add icons to Trace Compass, if it's not too much trouble, you should try to add the 2 versions for each icon in order to haver nicer High DPI monitor support. One should be higher resolution (foo@xxxxxx, typically 32x32 for Project Explorer, etc) and the other one is half the resolution (foo.png, 16x16). Of course, if you just take a tiny one and stretch it, there is not much point as the platform already does that kind of basic scaling but it definitely will look worse than if you make a nice 32x32 icon as the source.
