Description (last modified by Antoine Martin)

https://github.com/kaueraal/run_scaled/blob/master/run_scaled uses xpra to run any application with a fixed scaling factor locally.

There are a number of things we can do better:

  • package a script as part of xpra
  • make it self contained (no execing of other processes)
  • automatically attach rather than using the unreliable sleep delay
  • let the server figure out the best initial resolution to use automatically
  • work with wayland desktops (don't assume the client has an X11 display)
  • don't hardcode Xvfb
  • don't choose a display number in advance (not needed - not reliable)
  • add a man page

etc..

Updates:

  • r26777 + r26778: scaling environment variable tweaks (gtk / qt)
  • r26779: honour resize-display flag when upgrading
  • r26780 + r26782: /usr/bin/run_scaled script and packaging

Still TODO:

Startup can be a bit slow (can we make it faster? is Xvfb faster to startup?), #2540 would help mitigate this.
