Serious UI scaling problems with 4K monitor (Daz Studio)

Post by Crotalidae75 » Sat Aug 31, 2019 7:58 pm

I finally managed to get Daz Studio to run properly with Wine (which requires a PostgresSQL setup), under my Kubuntu 19.04 desktop, but I have a serious problem -- the fonts are almost unreadably small under my 4K monitor. I have searched for methods to scale the DPI on the emulated desktop, to no avail. Note that setting the DPI from within Winecfg has no effect on the scaling of Daz Studio itself. The program fonts remain tiny, while the menu bar for the program does scale. This is of no real use, though.

Is there any way to force a program (or the entire Wine desktop) to display at a higher DPI scaling? I am running a 28" ASUS 4K monitor. Unfortunately, the issue with the scaling is bad enough to make the program unusable unless I switch resolutions, but I don't really want to be doing that as it creates other problems for me. Also unfortunately, Daz Studio itself has NO option to scale the UI or fonts.
