I was using the gnome-desktop. My resolution is 1080p. When I set scaling to 100% it looks very small and when I set to 200% it looks very big. Is there any way to set in 125% or 150% in display scaling?
Not sure it’s possible in Gnome on Xorg yet. But I believe it’s possible on wayland.
It’s called Fractional Scaling.
How to enable it?
Change to wayland session in your login manager.
But since you are using nvidia it might not work.
I think so… I tried to enable it but it doesn’t work
Windows and MacOS are the only ones who do fractional scaling properly, maybe Sway (Wayland) does as well.
I use a Retina Macbook Pro (2880x1800, which is too small, 2x scaling is too big) and I don’t bother using fractional scaling because it’s nothing but problems. I just set my screen to 1920x1200 (i.e. one of the supported built-in modes) and it looks great. So maybe just pick a different available resolution and let the hardware do what it does
Not really the answer to your question but you should give KDE a try. I have been using gnome for years until buying a matebook 13" 2020.
I tried different things (wayland, patched gnome like in ubuntu…etc) but Manjaro KDE is by far the best out of the box experience. Works well and no screen tearing like in ubuntu and as a bonus i enabled hardware acceleration for video playback on chrome and indeed it works vety well (Intel GPU for my setup)
EDIT: In wayland it works well as well but most of the software has a blurry fonts issue. Some of the do offer a way to run the app in wayland but most of them don’t.
