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. :-)
