#11526 new Bug report

wxGTK3 Linux: small fonts in directory trees

Reported by: Alex Owned by:
Priority: high Component: FileZilla Client
Keywords: Cc: alevkovich@…
Component version: Operating system type: Linux
Operating system version:


Archlinux, Filezilla compiled with wxGTK v.
The better decription of the problem is the pictures I attached.
I think all fonts of all controls should have the same size like it was with GTK2 build.

I forgot to say about the main fact: you need to increase your dpi from standard 96 to 125 for example. It is not problem GTK3 because I have other GTK3 programs and they are ok with treeview's font. One more thing: only treeview widget affected. The fonts in all other widgets are ok.

Same issue here with a HiDPI screen on a 4K resolution. In my situation Filezilla is unusable (see screenshot) as I use my TV as a monitor and sit 5m away from it, e.g. I cannot read the tiny text.

Tried the following so far:


These increase the font size of the interface which is already OK, the tree widget's font size is not affected and remains tiny.



This produces no effect.

Using Filezilla 3.39.0 with wxGTK-3.0.4.

GDK_SCALE=2 GDK_DPI_SCALE=0.4 filezilla

works for me ballancing the strange wxPizza elements small fonts back to normal. it behaves strange.

i also tried to change the text of the wxPizza elements with .config/gtk-3.0/gtk.css but there i just cannot find the right elements and labels to address precisely. i can resize font of all gtk3 elements (*{font-size:60px} or something) but this breaks all other gtk3 windows on the system.
