tested 20.1rc2 XFCE, now 20.1rc4 XFCE.
I experience HiDPI issues (same with KDE version)
The most enoying is that when switch to HiDPI, I loose access to the desktop menu bar.
In the System Settings, you can search for
affichage and see whether the
global scaling option helps.
(Sorry, my System is in german, but you should still be able to find it)

Does not help.
ok, that is a little odd.
this might be a problem with xrandr then.
xrandr --dpi 144
to see if it changes something.
No change, as issue is both in XFCE & KDE it ought to be some common component or config.

Do you use a 1080p display? The screenshots are in 1080p, but X seems to show a 4k resolution.
If you do use a 1080p display try
xrandr --output HDMI-1 --mode 1920x1080
Screenshot 4K, but reduced to 1080 before upload on forum
could you please try
xfconf-query -c xsettings -p /Gdk/WindowScalingFactor -s 2
xfconf-query -c xfwm4 -p /general/theme -s Default-xhdpi
I tried again on 20.1 KDE rc6
No enhancement, to the exception that now the desktop menu is available.
for the commands, do you have them for KDE, I deleted the XFCE iso, I was waiting for later rc releases.
I’m sorry about not responding earlier, I was occupied and did not check the forum.
Please try this:
xrandr --output HDMI1 --scale 0.5x0.5
this scales evereything for me. Please not that the taskbar might not like this, so you need to do
killall plasmashell and then do
plasmashell in the terminal or preferably do it in krunner
(alt +space to start and just type
plasmashell and hit enter)
You are probable going to adjust the value after scale a bit to make it suit your needs. For me, a smaller value makes everything bigger and vice versa.
