I have more than one desktop computer running Arch Linux KDE. All were initially configured the same. Now one of them now has a scaled up display. I have not found the setting that is responsible for this.
Having checked every setting in KDE, I can say it is not a setting within KDE. Which other settings or config files could be making font (and other display elements) too large?
The text of messages during boot is normal. The problem starts once X starts.
My monitor has 109 ppi. The problem is shown here:
xdpyinfo | grep dots resolution: 192x191 dots per inch
I would like that value to be either 109 (to match monitor) or 96 (the usual Xorg value).
In System Settings > Display Configuration, the scale factor is 1.0.
In System Settings > Fonts I can check "Force font DPI" and set my desired value, but it doesn't have any effect.
xdpyinfo still reports "192x191 dots per inch".
I do not have any Xorg config files:
/etc/xorg.conf: No such file or directory /etc/X11/xorg.conf: No such file or directory
I do not have anything unusual in
<?xml version='1.0'?> <!DOCTYPE fontconfig SYSTEM 'fonts.dtd'> <fontconfig> <dir>~/.fonts</dir> <match target="font"> <edit mode="assign" name="hinting"> <bool>true</bool> </edit> </match> <match target="font"> <edit mode="assign" name="hintstyle"> <const>hintfull</const> </edit> </match> <match target="font"> <edit mode="assign" name="antialias"> <bool>true</bool> </edit> </match> </fontconfig>
I do not find any unusual settings from
