The OP's question arose on a KDE list, so I purposely left that out, because
that is exactly what KInfoCenter and 'kcmshell xserver' do behind the scenes.

The reason 'xrdb -query | grep dpi' might not work is because Xft.dpi is an
optional environment variable, and so if not set it will return nothing.

OTOH, 'xrdb -query | grep dpi' and 'xdpyinfo | grep resolution' will
occasionally return different results, which is one reason I asked so many
questions of the OP - it's entirely possible for more than two DPI values to
be used among various apps and the desktop itself.
