hey is anyone using linux with mixed display sizes? i can't figure out how to scale the 4k display properly without making the 1080p ones blurry

@kity
xrandr --output [4kdisplayname] --mode 3840x2160 --output [1080pdisplayname1] --mode 1920x1080

etc.

@kity

i think for me i have this (1366x728 laptop screen with a 1080p monitor to the right)

xrandr --output LVDS1 --mode auto --pos 0x0 --output HDMI2 --mode auto

@loki yeah cuz the dpi is wildly different for my 4k monitor vs the 1080p ones

@kity I am _so_ Online

wait what does that mean

well anyway, I don't know for sure, but I'm pretty sure you need to mention whether you're using X or Wayland, and if Wayland, it probably matters which compositor you're using...

@jamey i can either have the 1080p displays scaled to 4k, in which case i get blurry messed up fonts, or i can have them scaled normally in which case everything is huuuuge on the 1080p monitors

@kity I think you might be out of luck? I've seen GNOME 3 on Wayland get mixed-DPI right but I don't think it's feasible in X, where apps are almost never aware of multi-monitor layout. But I could be wrong, so don't take my word for it. 😅

@jamey ack. i'd be happy to use wayland, but fuckin nvidia....
