My Question or Issue
As of yesterday, I am a new Linux user. I have seen the previous thread where somebody edits a command in order to get it to scale properly, however when I search for Spotify.desktop, I get three matches, and in any case I can't see where to put any command.
So could somebody explain clearly the steps I need to take in order to get this to work? I need to know the applications to open, the commands to type in, the way in which I find something, etc. I'd be really grateful if someone good at explaining could explain how to do this. Thanks for reading.
Solved! Go to Solution.
Moments after I posted this I found out this page which explains the following. I will repaste here for posterity, as it was difficult to find. Although it covers a different type of Linux called Arch, it still works on Ubuntu, and the change is persistent too, so I'm really pleased to have found out this is fixable!
You can change scale factor by simple Ctrl++ for zoom in, Ctrl+- for zoom out and Ctrl+0 for default scale. Scaling setting will be saved in ~/.config/spotify/Users/YOUR-SPOTIFY-USER-NAME/prefs:
Also Spotify can be launched with a custom scaling factor which will be multiplied with setting specified in ~/.config/spotify/Users/YOUR-SPOTIFY-USER-NAME/prefs, for example
$ spotify --force-device-scale-factor=1.5
