Problem scaling login screen - Solved !

While desktop scaling is no problem on Mint 19.1 om my 4k monitor - Settings → General → Desktop scaling, set the UI to Double (Hi-DPI) - I've never been able find a way to scale the login screen , which means that text and icons there are minuscule. I'd be most grateful for any suggestions which wo...
