Re: [Texmacs-dev] TeXmacs on retina screens

as far as I understand the qt port ready works fine under retina (checked on 
my machine) the real issue is that we have to provide bitmapped fonts at double screen resolution and I was not able to understand how to do this. the same should be done for icons. retina display is just a standard display where resolution is more or less 144 dpi instead of 72 so if Jpris help me in obtaining that texmacs produce screen fonts at that resolution it should be possible to convince qt to put them onscreen in the right way. 

I currently cannot use my retina laptop since texmacs does not work properly so I'm very much interested in improving it in that direction.

AFAIK Qt5 does work with Retina with the latest beta 2. I don't know how much effort the port to Qt5 would cost, but it should be done eventually anyway.

Maybe it is worthwhile to think in this direction.

Just my two cents,

Dear all,

We currently have the problem that TeXmacs does not work well on Retina screens.
It seems that we have to wait for the integration of the necessary support
into Qt, but maybe some of you (Max? Miguel?) have a more precise idea on
what we can do instead of waiting.

For instance, I noticed the cg_renderer written by Max for computers
running under MacOS. Would it be easy to implement retina screen support
using this renderer?

Best wishes, --Joris
