I am using fluxbox.
Indeed, editing /usr/local/lib/pd/tcl/pd-gui.tcl to yield
tk scaling 1
solved the problem for me.
Interestingly there is a file /usr/local/bin/pd-gui.tcl present as
well, whose changes do not have an effet. This Pd is installed using
"make install" from within Miller's git sources. I wonder why
pd-gui.tcl is installed twice on my system, the latter one also being
in my $PATH.
Thank you again for this quick one Jonathan.
There is a comment related to tk scaling in this very file just above
the scaling option:
# we are not using Tk scaling, so fix it to 1 on all platforms. This
# guarantees that patches will be pixel-exact on every platform
# 2013.07.19 msp - trying without this to see what breaks - it's
# deleterious effects on dialog window font sizes.
Would be interesting to know wonder what the deletrious effects were.
But, hey- problem solved for me.
