Until recently I have used vnc viewer to scale my desktop down. I would start my server with a huge desktop size, then set my viewer to fit to scale. This effectively shrunk not just the text but all gui settings as well, and in so doing giving me an effectively larger screen real estate at the expense of smaller icon/text.
Now I'm being forced to switch to a far more limited vncviewer tool, I can't even download a better free viewer, due to company rules. I no longer have a zoom-to-fit option on my viewer. Suddently all my gui tools feel huge and cumbersom and I miss all my effective screen realestate I've lost. Is there a way to get a similar effect using only linux and VNC server options? I want to scale down not just text, but all gui icons and spacing as well.
