Some apps are not respecting scale settings

Just installed Manjaro Gnome and have issues with resolution of some apps. Specifically Steam (installed through package manager) and Spotify (snap package).

Running Manjaro 22.1.0 Gnome with Wayland
Kernel: 6.1.21-1-MANJARO
Screen resolution: 2880x1800 (16:10)

Other apps don’t seem to have the issue. In Settings Scale is set to 200%.

Sorry I’m new to Arch and Manjaro so I can be a bit slow when it comes to fetching relevant data about my setup.

Apparently this can be fixed by setting fractional scale (Can’t link it because forum doesn’t allow to. But there is HiDPI article on Arch wiki)
But in renders xwayland apps blurry (e.g. IDEA, Firefox to name a few I have issue with)

I guess I will swtich to KDE for the time being since it has an option to allow legacy apps to handle scaling themselfs

Look: [HowTo] Gnome Xorg Fractional (per monitor) Scaling
On Wayland too but: scale-monitor-framebuffer
gsettings set org.gnome.mutter experimental-features “[‘scale-monitor-framebuffer’]”
install dconf-editor (then goto /org/gnome/mutter/experimental-features)

For Firefox please add in /home/(username)/.profile the line:
in Wayland better reboot after doing changes…
