#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).

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.

i have the same issue -
filezilla 3.42.1-1
wxgtk3 3.0.4-2

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.
