Display scaling with 4k Monitor on Mate

Post by buscon »

hi,

I am running mint 19.2 with Mate. I recently got a 4k Monitor, the resolution is great but the overall look is too small, how can scale the whole screen to a bigger one without changing the resolution?
There is no such option in the Monitor Precerences.

thank you.

19.3 has better HiDPI support. It allows font scaling. Your DPI should be set to 140+. I use 144.
Coming to a thread near you: Lots of bragging about my AMD 5950X. Currently delayed due to high demand.
It's pronounced kad-eye-cha, not kada-itcha.

great, thanks a lot!
Actually I am running 19.3, I mistyped it.
So I just changed that through Preferences -> Appearance -> Fonts tab -> Details -> Resolution

Is there a quicker way to change this value? I often need to change it between home and work.
