I am using a small laptop (GPD Pocket 7") and would like to go back to Wayland instead of Xorg.
Scaling factor has to be an integer on Xorg and so on this small screen things are either way to small at 1x or WAY to big at 2x. On 17.10 I used scaling of 1.4x to get a good compromise.
Checking around on google, I found alot of material on dumping Wayland and reverting to Xorg for Ubuntu, but nothing for going the other way. An other suggestion I found was to use ‘xrandr’ to scale things back, but this just locked up my laptop.
Sorry to hijack the thread a little, but after installing teamviewer 13, it says it cannot run because the OS is using wayland. How come is this happening, since you’re saying it is not using wayland?
To bypass this teamviewer restriction, I saw on many forums that people can choose Xorg instead of wayland by selecting the gear icon at the login on ubuntu. I have not seen anything like this in Budgie.
Is there a workaround/solution?
Thanks in advance
(PS: sorry for my english, I speak french. Also, I’m kind of tech savvy but fairly new to linux, so maybe I’m missing some basic concepts)
Turning back a little to the original topic, what is the suggested way to achieve custom scale 150% on Budgie ? I decided to use Budgie daily for work and personal use, and do not want to use something else, because of known limitations woth X.org.
Is xrandr the primary option suggested my Budgie Masters also ?
Thank you in advance
Thank you for your quick response. I read that article you shared. Unfortunately my laptop is a Tuxedo machine, whereas no more support will be provided by Tuxedo, when upgrading from 18.04 LTS to 19.nn. I like Budgie and know limitation is coming from. deeper. I think I have no choice and do upgrade, or use fractional scaling otherwise very hard to work with scale 100% or 200% on my laptop. Thanks for the clatification and confirmation.
Thank you, Attila
