oversized fonts and mixed modules

  • Hello
    I just installed in my MM, 7 modules

    Clock --------------------------- top left
    mmm-images photos -------- full center which turns in loop in bottom of stain
    mmm-mail --------------------- bottom left
    compliment ------------------- center
    current weather -------------- top left
    water forecast ----------------- center left
    newfeed ------------------------ at the bottom

    My first problem that happens to me is that all my modules are not quite in their place
    My second problem is that fonts are too big
    While browsing the forum I understood that it would be necessary to modify variables in custom css
    But then it’s me who has a problem I went to the forum and I read with a translator the different solution but it’s really hard to work and understand, I’m French and do not speak English so if you could give me very detailed advice it would be great, I would try to understand with the translator I I’ll try to put a picture so you can see
    Thanks for your help

    I would assume that your resolution is not the native resolution of the monitor. You would then find as well the font of the starting console at the start of the raspberry pi too big.

    However you could try to use a “zoom” factor in your config.js

    language: 'de',
    timeFormat: 24,
    units: 'metric',
    zoom: 0.5,

  • language: ‘from’,
    timeFormat: 24,
    units: ‘metric’,
    zoom: 0.5,
    Thank you but how to install these 4 lines and I place or in my config there is no accollade {}? and in language I replace ‘de’ with ‘fr’?

  • Module Developer

    @papinel You need to put the “zoom: 0.8” line into your config.js.
    Just do a

    sudo nano ~/MagicMirror/config/config.js

    and write the line below the language or timeformat line. Don’t forget the comma!
    Close and save it and restart.

    Out of curiosity: What is the resolution of your system currently?
    Did you put something specific into the /boot/config.txt of your raspberry pi? Or do you have some other device?

  • Hello
    and full of thanks for the 2 very detailed tips you gave me,
    actually after changing the resolution in raspberry and add
    zoom: 0.5,
    in my config everything is perfect attached here the photo
