I've broken Qt apps scaling on Mint Cinnamon 18.1

Post by eladhen » Sun Jan 29, 2017 6:07 am

Hi all,

I noticed lately that some Qt apps (noticeably VLC, Calibre and Krita 3.1) won't scale properly like the rest of the desktop. I suspect this might be due to the fact that I installed the Kubuntu Backports PPA, but removing it and downgrading the packages from it didn't fix the breakage. I know this problem isn't general because I tried Mint Cinnamon 18.1 in a VM and the scaling of the Qt apps there is fine.

Any idea how to fix this? I would really want to avoid a reinstallation, but these are daily apps for me, and this scaling problem is hard on my eyes on a 1080p 13" screen.
