Nvideo GPU RTX 3070 ti , 305x305 DPI problem

Hello Garuda users and helpers.

I bought a NvidiaRtx3070ti, I installed it in my pc, when I power on my computer, all the windows, fonts and are so big, I tried to change the size of windows and everything but sometimes it is impossible because the menus are big and I can not read all the options(due to big the size of the fonts).

what can I do?

thank you in advance.

and I have a doubt, how can I enable the windows key on my keyboard for showing me the menu?

Please, format your inxi

Try, edit the /etc/sddm.conf and add

[X11]
ServerArguments=-nolisten tcp -dpi 96

Search in forum, please, and only one problem per thread :slight_smile:

There seems to be something strange here in the dimensions. Maybe this is causing your scaling problem.
Can you check in KDE settings or xrandr if you can adjust it?
