I am using Ubuntu 18.10 and I am creating a javaFX application. I have used a lot of time to research google and found no way at all to make my program scale on linux. Here is how it looks like:


I have tried different things like adding Dprism.allowhidpi=true in VM options and adding System.setProperty("prism.allowhidpi", "true"); at the start of my program which is nothing but a simple window. What could I do?

I am using openJDK 11 and openJFX 11

I have seen some people saying that you can launch the jar file with some scaling commands, the problem here is that I am coding, it's inside intellij, it's not a jar file.
