GUI scaling for 4K display

Dear Experts,

I have recently started using a laptop with a 4K display (3840x2169 resolution). In Gnome I set the scaling of apps to 200% so that I can see anything :wink: and it does work for most of the apps in gnome/linux, but it does not for ROOT gui.
The TBrowser, TCanvas and other windows are just too small.

I know I can of course scale the font sizes up, I tried it with .rootrc and it works but the enlarged fonts don’t quite fit the GUI windows an it is not comfortable to work like this (especially as other controls are still small).

Someone at the forum suggested setting useXft to “yes”, I did so but it didn’t help.

Is there any working solution for that? Or any update foreseen?

Best regards,
Pawel

P.S. I know there were topics like this one, all of them are however closed without soultion…

_Compiler: gcc 10


I think @bellenot can help you with this.

Sorry, but there is no proper solution for this issue. This should be automatically fixed with the ROOT 7 Web based GUI though
