Compiling a list has been on my todo list for a while, but it seems to be a
moving target that depends on X version, hardware & drivers, as well as
distro. is a recent attempt to
figure it out in Mandriva. has suggestions from a
Novell developer. might
have something I'm forgetting about ATM.

If you find Xft.dpi has been set to 96, you need to find out where and either
change it to null or to some specific DPI that suits you.
