[openbox] using openbox with HiDPi display

Thanks very much. Yes, I have been using Misc-Fixed 10x20 with everything and I feel that it is the most readable because it is clean and fixed-width.

It is possible that it does not work with HiDPI, but strangely enough, it seems to work with my terminal (https://github.com/maitra/aNu).

Any suggestions as to why, and how I can fix emacs in that case? 

I will also look at the terminus fonts, but I would have liked to stick with my preferred font. 

Many thanks,
