Here I have Ubuntu 16.04 LTS and I can adjust the scaling. In 18.4 LTS the scaling is missing?????


Ubuntu switched from the Unity desktop to the Gnome Shell Desktop. Scaling works differently in Gnome Desktop than it did in Unity.

  • You can set overall scaling, but only by integers (i.e. 100%, 200%) in Settings - Displays
  • You can further adjust font scaling after installing Gnome Tweaks by changing "Scaling factor" on the Fonts tab.
