Still some issues with GUI fractional scaling in this release (see : https://bbs.deepin.org/en/post/269457 for initial issue).

But I could work around them by doing the following :

  • If all the UI of the app is giant, set : GDK_SCALE=0.5
    In my case : Amberol (flatpak), Shortwave (flatpak), Flatseal (flatpak), BoxBuddyRS (flatpak), Mission Center (flatpak)
  • If font size are normal but other components are too big, set : GDK_DPI_SCALE=1 and GDK_SCALE=1
    In my case : Remmina (flatpak), VMware Workstation (direct binary), Gnome Boxes (flatpak), Firefox (flatpak)

I have opened a ticket via Deepin Home, but do not know how to edit it to add these information. So I put them here.

If things stay like this because they cannot be automatically solved, maybe options in contextuel menu to set these properties, app by app, could be useful to avoid using flatseal and editing desktop files...
