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!
