.Fractional scaling available for GNOME Shell on Wayland On a *GNOME Shell on Wayland* session, the fractional scaling feature is available. The feature makes it possible to scale the GUI by fractions, which improves the appearance of scaled GUI on certain displays. Note that the feature is currently considered experimental and is, therefore, disabled by default. To enable fractional scaling, run the following command: # gsettings set org.gnome.mutter experimental-features "['scale-monitor-framebuffer']"

Description Florian Müllner 2019-01-23 19:47:11 UTC
Description of problem: The component was already rebased to the 8.0 GNOME version in RHEL 7. But as RHEL 8 was branched off from the corresponding Fedora version rather than the last RHEL branch, all downstream patches went missing. As the upstream version hasn't changed since the last RHEL 7 release, fortunately all patches are ready to be re-applied again.

Comment 9 Jonas Ådahl 2019-02-21 14:14:23 UTC
As of 3.28.3-18 the patch 0001-wayland-enable-scale-monitor-framebuffer-by-default.patch was removed, as it was added by accident.

(In reply to Jonas Ådahl from comment #9) > As of 3.28.3-18 the patch > 0001-wayland-enable-scale-monitor-framebuffer-by-default.patch was removed, > as it was added by accident. To get back the experimental feature enabling fractional scaling, as was enabled in 7.6 (on Wayland only, thus not in the default configuration), one have to run the following command: gsettings set org.gnome.mutter experimental-features "['scale-monitor-framebuffer']"
