I’m using Kubuntu 22.04 on a laptop with supported resolution up to 1366x768 and I’m trying to scale my display with the following command:
xrandr --output (my_display_name) --panning 1600x900 --scale 1.17130307467x1.171875
Apps and panel scaled correctly but the desktop stayed in the previously used resolution.
I have tried quitting and restarting plasmashell but the issue remained.
Anyone have any idea on how to solve this?
Thanks in advance!
This is not a supported way to scale your screen, so I’m afraid you’re on your own if you use it.
The supported method is in System Settings > Display and Monitor > Global scale. Make sure to reboot after changing the setting, or else everything will be blurry.
Ah I see. If only i could set the global scale setting to below 100%
Never mind, I’ve found the fix. I just had to create an autostart script and i guess the scaling was somehow done before the plasmashell started.
