Eventually there's a setting in /etc/X11/xorg.conf called
"DisplaySize" that does not match the display size of the
monitor. Take a ruler and check. Then, calculate the dpi
resolution from what the manufacturer says about the amount
of pixels in X and Y (e. g. "1200x800").

                   physical pixels x
        dpi(x) = ---------------------
                 display width in inch


                   physical pixels y
        dpi(y) = ----------------------
                 display height in inch

The dpi resolution chosen by the X server can be determined

        % grep DPI /var/log/Xorg.0.log

This should match the reality.

No, must be somebody else. Name is from Homer's Illias. And,
no, it's not Homer Simpson. :-)
