[SOLVED] Linux - interface font too small for 4K resolution

Question

As per title. On a 4K monitor (3840x2160) the interface font is really too small.

How to have the interface font 2-4x ??

see the screenshot (reduced at 75% of the original to match the 4.88MB limit)

In Firestorm, you can go to the preferences and choose your screen font size. I would not be surprised if there was something the same in your viewer.

thanks for the fast answer! but doesn't help much, unfortunately.

In fact, I perlustrated every menu or setting (even in advanced and develop menus). The only modifiable font (in size) is for the chat content but not for the interface.

Probably I have to put some parameter to the launch command in shell. None found at this moment.

Hoping some developer can help me on this matter.

thanks anyway, angeoco.

Try right clicking an empty spot on your Windows desktop and select Display settings.  Then change the Scaling setting to something bigger than 100%.

Thank you Lindal Kidd but:

1) I'm on Linux and not on Windows (on Linux too exist the same configurable parameter anyway);

2) The scaling would affect the entire desktop and not only the application itself. So, a temporary 'gross' workaround but even if would have SL with menu visible, when you switch on other applications like a browser the result would have an abnormally 'inflated' interface for those apps.

Thank you anyway!

Have you tried installing Firestorm instead of your current viewer? It works basically the same but has a lot more technical options.

maybe I'm a bit dumb but I have difficulty to find Firestorm viewer for Linux link. Can you help me Callum? 

Or I have to download the windows version (I need the link as well, please) and run it with wine? (i have wine-staging 3.10 installed)
