Robomongo (Robo-3T) high DPI settings for Linux and Mac
- 31 Jan 2018: Post was created (diff)
My monitor is high DPI, and when starting robomongo, everything was a bit too small.
Downloading an unzipping gave me this tree
robo3t-1.1.1-linux-x86_64-c93c6b0 $ tree . ├── bin │ ├── qt.conf │ └── robo3t ├── lib │ ├── [...] ├── CHANGELOG ├── COPYRIGHT ├── DESCRIPTION └── LICENSE
Which gave a hint this application is using Qt. Looking in the git repo, I found that they are using Qt5, and they support HIGH_DPI mode.
Before starting the binary, I can set the environment variable ‘QT_SCALE_FACTOR=2’ to be able to get a usable user interface.
$ QT_SCALE_FACTOR=2 ./bin/robo3t
