I use 3 * 4k monitors with 1,5 fractional scale on each of them.

Since this update, on some applications (Remmina flatpak, p3x-one-note snap, bitwarden snap, ...), the UI is horribly big.

As if fractional scaling was no more working, and 200% scale was applied.

So : "Fixed issue where application interfaces were enlarged 3-4 times on 4K screens" has the opposite behaviour from what is expected. Before, it was OK ; now it's horrible !

Is there a way to fix this, or should I wait until a fix is delivered, maybe next week (hopefully, before...) ?

Thank you for this, and for the good job in general !

This update really messed up some applications on HiDPI screens.

Apps that do not follow the DDE theme (GTK or their own themes, for example) are displayed in a huge format on the screen.

After updating, Mozilla Firefox displays distorted; as well as Motrix (torrent app).

However, the solution I managed to find is to insert an instruction for each application to run:

Exec=env GDK_DPI_SCALE=0.5 [...]

Thank you. I will try to modify the exec field of desktop files accordingly asap.

Works like a charm with GDK_DPI_SCALE=1 in my case.

Thank you once again.
