Automatically Rescale Cinnamon on switching displays

Post by Chronic788 »

I am running Linux Mint 19.3 on a laptop with a 4k display. I often use it while it is plugged up to a very large external 4k display. When I unplug the display, the desktop scaling on the laptop screen goes very small on the laptop display. I would like it to resize to a scale that is readable when I switch between displays.

The only way I know how to switch the scaling is to log out and back in again but this is very inconvenient. Is there a way to have Mint do this automatically?

I'm interested in this as well. I have a similar setup, but I'm often connecting to a HD-only TV via HDMI and have to manually switch scaling between the different displays.
