I have a machine running RHEL6.7, this machine is connected via ssh to another machine and I am forwarding graphics using X11 forwarding.

The problem is that when I run the program, the scaling is all messed up on my machine. Is there a way to tell the server the display of my screen?


If you are using xserver and have the xrandr package installed then you use it to change the display settings:

xrandr --size 1920x1080

That's just an example size. You can replace it with whatever suits you. Just make sure that it doesn't exceed what your GPU and monitor support.
