I’ve recently decided to transition from Windows to Linux via PopOS which I’ve heard is the “kinder gentler way” to move away from windows.
I have a monitor which is 2560 x 1080 and I sit about two feet away so reading text is difficult. When I was running Windows I would increase display scaling from 100% to 125%. With PopOS the only option I see in the GUI is to go from 100-200% no in between.
I know there must be a way to make this change via terminal commands and I’ve done some googleing however I couldn’t quite understand some of the linux speak that was being thrown around.
Can somebody help me accomplish this with instructions that don’t use to much jargon.
You could also download the gnome-tweak tool and set a custom dpi.
So I tried these instructions and it didn’t enable “fractional scaling” (which I do appreciate now knowing the proper terminology for what I am trying to do)
Going to try the gnome-tweak tool and hope to have some success there. I have another topic I need to address but I think i need to make a new post. I want to find some way to easily switch between spkrs and headphones without having to go into system every time…
Awesome bro got the audio switching working but I still can’t get the fractional scaling to work
I messed around in the tweaker but nothing…however I am now looking around for extensions to do it with the tweaker.
In case anyone else wants some help with this issue I found a forum post that did seem to help.
When I set the scaling to 125%, I get very choppy video playback (Chromium,Firefox, Youtube, Prime Video,etc). That is pretty useless! so currently I have set the display resolution to next lower 1600x1024 instead of 2160x1440 with scaling)
