As you can see, something is wrong. I haven’t had this issue happen on any of my other systems. I use the Nvidia drivers, if that helps. I’ve looked through many different posts here, on Reddit, and other forums and none of them have been able to give me a straight answer on what exactly to do. Some say you need to edit something called "edid.bin, others say you just need to run these very specific xrandr commands that involve measuring your screen, and others say you only need to adjust the dpi slider in settings. I don’t have a ruler, nor do I think that having one could help anyway, so I’m just lost. Do I just need to deal with it? This really sucks.
EDIT: My laptop is an Acer Predator g9-793 and it runs at 1080p.
I’m at work right now but I’ll look at this. What is the Hz of your monitor? You say it is 1080p so resolution should be 1920x1080. Not sure of the hz? I think it’s an easy fix. What desktop did you install? What is the exact issue? UI is too big? What do you mean exactly?
Hey there. Sorry for being so vague. The monitor runs at 75hz, I installed KDE Plasma(hence why I’m posting in this board), the exact issue that everything is scaled too large and some elements don’t fit at all. The easiest to notice examples are that the title bars for windows and ESPECIALLY the start menu in the screenshot are way too big.
EDIT: Here’s how everything looks on my desktop so you can have a good comparison:
Yes, there are many more things that become apparent when you try to make the slightest bit of customization. Here’s what things look like when you change the global theme to McMojave:
There is no possible way that this is intended. You can’t even drag from those edges, you have to drag from this invisible spot just off the side of the buttons.
I will throw my chip in the pool. You said you run nvidia, and I am assuming it is proprietary drivers. Have you tried running ‘nvidia-settings’ as root and creating/saving a new xorg.conf file, then rebooting? I usually have to do this with my 1660 super card along with changing the DPI setting in ‘SDDM’ to get the login screen sized appropriately;
