Linux Mint Continues Working On HiDPI Improvements

Linux Mint 18.3 Will Feature More HiDPI Improvements

  • Linux Mint 18.3 Will Feature More HiDPI Improvements

    Linux Mint is planning some big HiDPI improvements for its next major release.

    Big enough to see HiDPI enabled by default in Cinnamon 3.6.

    Those using Linux Mint on a device with a HiDPI display currently have to dive into the display settings to double UI scaling (200%).

    From the vague commitment to improve HiDPI in Cinnamon 3.6 on Linux Mint 18.3 it sounds like the distro will detect when scaling should be enabled and apply it automatically.

    No word on whether/if fractional scaling (1.25, 1.5 etc) will be implemented. Based on the terse conclusion to this bug report filed against Cinnamon, I’d say no!
