This has come up on another list:

"Xorg forces DPI 96 irrespective of the correct DPI detected
by/calculated from EDID."
OK, thanks for the info. However, it turns out that my installation of the nvidia drivers was not as succeful as I tought. After reboot my laptop refuses to start X (hangs during startup). After removing the nvidia drivers and returning to nouveau things work again.  This is on

I would prefer to have the nvidia drivers working so any suiggestions for a workaround will be greatly appreciated.
