Description Jonas Ådahl 2018-04-13 10:26:07 UTC
Description of problem:

With GNOME 3.26, the management of monitor scaling factors was moved from a global setting (managed either directly via the gsettings entry, or via GNOME Tweak Tool -> Window -> Scaling factor) to the Settings app. Changing this setting the old way is incompatible with how the scaling is managed in GNOME 3.26, so not having rebased GNOME Tweak Tool (which removed the scaling factor tweakability in 3.26) makes it easy to mess HiDPI support up.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):


Additional info:

Since the tweak tool doesn't allow to "reset" the scaling factor, to get rid of the problem after having tweaked, the user must change back the org.gnome.desktop.interface scaling-factor setting to 0.
