Steam under Linux (and probably other environments too but I’ve never run it elsewhere) has a nice feature to enlarge text on high dpi displays. Unfortunately when I enable it, the pop-up windows (such as the settings window) will scroll down the screen repeatedly disappearing from view.
Which is very inconvenient and makes it quite tricky to turn the feature back off again. Now this could be a problem with the Awesome window manager or with the settings that I use (although Steam seems to be the only application with this issue), but I’m not interested enough to try and fix the problem.
I just want to change the setting back to something that may be small and squashed but at least works.
- Find the ~/.steam/registry.vdf file.
- Edit with a text editor and search for “DPIScaling” :-
» grep DPIScaling registry.vdf "DPIScaling" "1"
And change the “1” to a “0”, and restart Steam.
