TeamViewer not scaling in Ubuntu and/or 4k Screens

indeed this works as a workaround

for others to clarify the steps in Ubuntu or Variants, here are the 2-4 steps:
 
Open up this file "/usr/bin/teamviewer" with a text editor (gedit in my case,) from a terminal
                  $ sudo gedit /usr/bin/teamviewer
Add this line to the beginning save, and exit, and restart TeamViewer
               'export QT_SCALE_FACTOR=1.33'                    (1.33 or larger 2 works well)
 
Always trying to help, Mark
p.s. in 1080p it now works without any workaround with the new Awesome NVidia 415 Driver for Linux

Re: TeamViewer not scaling in Ubuntu and/or 4k Screens

This workaraound has STOPPED Working! ... back to quite unusable small font in 4K Ubuntu!

 

Why it worked before and ot for the past 3 months and this newer 15.1.XX teamviewer is beyond me!

It does not even work anymore with the older teamviewer reinstalled!

So again

 

Scaling in 4K HiDPI screens is abismal using Ubuntu.

 

Please help ... we know you can ... Teamviewer!

Re: TeamViewer not scaling in Ubuntu and/or 4k Screens

For the record,

It has magically started scaling ... using 4K with Ubuntu!

Thanks ... and please tell me what you did!

 

So to be clear ... until today TV was unusable with 4K as it did not scale and fonts appeared minute (tiny).

I had a workaround that stopped working for the past couple of months or more,

 

Either way thanks (Why it took so long is beyond me!) but THANKS!

but now it is working!

Re: TeamViewer not scaling in Ubuntu and/or 4k Screens

Here is my current contents of the teamviewer file

sudo gedit /usr/bin/teamviewer

and the lines after '#' are ignored of course, but I have them to show what I have tried,

and again today puny fonts in 4K yet again

so here is my file for anyone who cares LOL

"/usr/bin/teamviewer" ...

####################################################

#!/bin/bash

# If you see this message, you probably attempted to start TeamViewer.
# Please open a terminal (Konsole, gnome-terminal, xterm),
# navigate to this folder (type 'cd /path/to/teamviewer' [Enter])
# then execute TeamViewer (type './teamviewer' [Enter])


TV_SCRIPT_DIR="$(dirname "$(readlink -e "$0")")"
source "$TV_SCRIPT_DIR/tvw_main"

Main "$@"

# 'export QT_SCALE_FACTOR=1.33'(DOES NOT WORK ANYMORE!!)
# 'export QT_SCALE_FACTOR=2.00'(DOES NOT work anymore!)

export QT_SCALE_FACTOR=1.33 TV_SCRIPT_DIR="$(dirname "$(readlink -e "$0")")" source "$TV_SCRIPT_DIR/tvw_main" Main "$@"#

############################################################

 

I hope htis helps someone!
