What should be the display scaling of a 15.6 inch 1920*1080 (Full HD) laptop display? I am on Manjaro gnome and everything seems a little small, especially websites. Using amd open source graphics driver (I think it is on hybrid mode). Hp Omen 15 2020 (Ryzen 5 4600H & GTX 1660 Ti). Scaling is probably 125% on windows 11.
KDE/QT Scalling 120 dpi
Chrome or other chromium based (they have another config file names. See PKGBUILD code package for details.)
--flag-switches-begin --high-dpi-support=1 --force-device-scale-factor=1.2 --flag-switches-end
Add to file
Reboot for apply changes.
Spotify in desktop file Exec need:
Exec=spotify --force-device-scale-factor=1.2 %U
instead of default.
In gnome-control-center there is a option for fractional scaling. If i set 125% there, everything seems file (a bit large 2 b honest, 120% would b fine but there is no option for 120%).
Can I set 120 scaling on the entire os? 125 seems a little large.
GDM is not scaling to 125%, it is still 100% & everything is very tiny. How to fix gdm scaling?
This solved the issue… I had to enable fractional scaling for gdm in x11 first.
I have set 125% scaling in gnome-control-center & nothing else. Everything is looking normal now though I think it is a little large.
Cause better is 120 dpi, not 125 based on Win.doze.
with code inside
[Wayland] EnableHiDPI=true [X11] ServerArguments=-nolisten tcp -dpi 120 EnableHiDPI=true
[Autologin] Relogin=false Session= User= [General] HaltCommand=/usr/bin/systemctl poweroff Numlock=none RebootCommand=/usr/bin/systemctl reboot [Theme] Current=breeze CursorTheme=breeze_cursors [Users] MaximumUid=60000 MinimumUid=1000 [X11] ServerArguments=-dpi 120
IN KDE enviroments variables should be put in sh file:
#!/usr/bin/bash export BROWSER="/usr/bin/xdg-open" export EDITOR="/usr/bin/nano" export GCC_COLORS="auto" export GDK_SCALE=1.2 export JAVA_FONTS="/usr/share/fonts/TTF" export KDE_FULL_SESSION=true export KDE_SESSION_VERSION=5 export QT_LOGGING_RULES='*=false' export PATH="$HOME/bin:$PATH" export SSH_ASKPASS="/usr/bin/ksshaskpass" export SSH_AUTH_SOCK="$XDG_RUNTIME_DIR/ssh-agent.socket" export SYSTEMD_COLORS=1 export VISUAL=$EDITOR export _JAVA_OPTIONS="-Dawt.useSystemAAFontSettings=lcd_hrgb -Dswing.aatext=true" export COGL_ATLAS_DEFAULT_BLIT_MODE=framebuffer
for working these proper zsh file or bash CONFIG file (
.zshrc) should be added line
[ -f $HOME/.config/plasma-workspace/env/envars.sh ] && . $HOME/.config/plasma-workspace/env/envars.sh
So can you please tell me how can I do 1.20 scaling instead of 1.25 in Gnome?
Options are 125% 150% 200%…
GNOME is hardcoded. Read linked article wiki with care.
Hey I just checked in Windows 11, the recommended scaling is set to 125% there.
I know But Windows using another scalling technology and in results GUI is not that big instead of Linux DE.
Your call if you stay with 125 or trying 1.2
Anything other than 125/150/200 is looking a little blurry. So I am sticking with 125% scaling. Compared some websites with Windows 11 & everything is looking almost similar.
Too big for me, but it is your setup.
