TeamViewer Linux on 4k HiDPI Displays

I just wanted to share my findings regarding TV12 on 4k/HiDPI displays:

Run TV in an terminal:

teamviewer winecfg

There in the graphics section you can set your DPI value.

In case the login windows disappears reset to 96dpi and try again...

Re: TeamViewer Linux on 4k HiDPI Displays

setting dpi to more than 120 in winecfg leaves the login-window out of desktop-scope .. had to scale down to 96dpi to collect the wine-windows first , then set to 300dpi again .. now all works as expected .. thanks

Hey,

I have this issue also. I got laptop with UHD screen. This means that Teamviewer is super small.

If I use winecfg to increase DPI size over 120 dpi then login/computer list is gone. I need DPI at least to 200.

Re: TeamViewer Linux on 4k HiDPI Displays

actually my dpi-settings ist 200 .. i managed to do so by raising the value in small steps and at every restart keeping the two TV-windows within the screen .. now they stay where they should

Re: TeamViewer Linux on 4k HiDPI Displays

Thank you! That workaround worked nicely!

BTW. Another problem. Now all my servers/clients are super tiny when I open connection. I managed to somewhat improve it by clicing "Scaled" under view tab, but that is just bad workaround. 

How to solve that?

Don't forget to run `systemctl stop teamviewerd.service`

If the deamon is running the wine command will do nothing.

Re: TeamViewer Linux on 4k HiDPI Displays

Hi. There is no difference if I run

teamviewer winecfg

or just

teamviewer

and there is no setting like dpi anywhere...

I also cannot login as all entry fields like "e-mail" and "password" are disabled
