HiDPI scaling problems
Closed, WontfixPublic


First off, is there any possibility to use 1.5 scaling? I have 27" 4K display and I was used for this scaling in Win10. Next up, if you set scaling to 2, maximizing does not respect enlarged Budgie panel and upper panel of window will become hidden under it.

Also right-click menu is severly damaged with HiDPI scaling.

More of a gnome issue at the moment. You could try setting a higher DPI with xrandr

If your window is hidden partially behind the panel after enabling HiDPI, run

killall budgie-panel

and it should restart with the correct physical dimensions

Sorry, fractional scaling isn't supported by the GNOME stack. They're currently trying to implement this in some hack fests. All we can do is wait to see what comes down the pipeline.
This isn't something we ourselves can fix. I'm closing this as we wontfix, but upstream will.

Anything new on this? Gnome 3.26 introduced an experimental fractional scaling thing that doesn't work on Solus (the option does not appear in the menu after using the command)

@utybo I've yet to enable experimental features (they're compile-time options).

@JoshStrobl Alright, do you guys plan on activating these experimental features or do you prefer waiting for them to become stable and non-experimental?

@utybo My plan is to upgrade our Wayland, Wayland Protocols, Weston, then do the respective rebuilds of all the things that are reverse dependencies. After that I'll be enabling Wayland support and will be enabling experimental features at the same time.
