Hello archers,

I’m looking to buy "24 4K monitor, the resolution is seems to be as twice as FullHD, but I don’t wan’t to use it as 2x, since I have bad eyes and do scaling of fonts across all desktops on my current "24 FullHD monitor anyway. But I didn’t tried a factorial DPI yet on the old one, since it definitely will look blurry.

So I want to get some suggestions from community. Does Factorial screen DPI works good now across KDE and GNOME? On Arch Wiki I found only information on factorial DPI in GNOME. I know that macOS supports it well since last fall.

Had anyone tried a factorial whole screen DPI? Or it will be better to stay as I’m now, just set 2x DPI for whole screen, and manually adjust font in every desktop/app/os?
