We are writing the year 2018 and it will not be the year of Linux again! I'm working on Wayland since the beginning of the year (full time!), but it's not that satisfying with a mixed/multi dpi setup.
I really don't need many applications:
- Docker (For me that's the only reason for Linux actually!)
- Mail Client
So I'm using one native application: Terminal
This is the only one which is running as excepted on all monitors! When switching the app from one monitor to another with different dpi it's scaled automatically correct! That's what I'm expecting.
What I've found out yet:
- Electron apps are not able to use the scale factor of Wayland
- Java apps are not able to use the scale factor of Wayland
- Chrome/Chromium/Firefox is not able to use the scale factor of Wayland
So I'm not sure where the problem is really located? In Mutter? In Electron? In Swing? In Chrome? In Chromium? In Firefox?
I hope someone can point me into the right direction to find out what I need to wait for.
