Edit → Preferences → View → Screen resolution → Calibrate… → I measured on
the screen and got 424 mm horisontally and 185,5 mm vertically. The result
was a resolution of 95.849×95.849 dpi. Restarted GIMP, created a new image
of 100×100 mm, viewed it at 100% zoom but it was still 75×75 mm, just like
before I calibrated. Does the screen resolution thing work at all? I
experimented with other settings too, but still a 100×100 mm image was
75×75 mm, no matter what values I used.
The quick workaround for my screen is to view at 133% zoom, but that
doesn't feel right…
Tested this at 2 different computers with the same lack of results:
Ubuntu 9.10, GIMP 2.6.8
Ubuntu 10.10, GIMP 2.6.10
Am I supposed to restart Ubuntu for these settings to take place?
