Changing Screen Scale

System information:

Fedora 33, Gnome, On wayland

I’ve got a laptop screen. And I wanna make it like a big screen, with making smaller window decorations, contents, texts, all of screen. I can’t see any option about scale in gnome settings. I’m really tried a few commands and methods about that, but none of them worked. (I can’t found my commands so bash history not activated, (also I’ll report it). After founding I’ll share.)

Follow this thread as it should still be relevant:
Fedora Workstation : Get buttons bigger?

Note that some changes require to relogin to apply properly.

Commands that I was tried:

xrandr --output XWAYLAND0 --scale 0.9x0.9

Outputs:

X Error of failed request:  BadMatch (invalid parameter attributes)
  Major opcode of failed request:  140 (RANDR)
  Minor opcode of failed request:  7 (RRSetScreenSize)
  Serial number of failed request:  22
  Current serial number in output stream:  24

gsettings set org.gnome.settings-daemon.plugins.xsettings overrides "{'Gdk/WindowScalingFactor': <0.9>}"

No output, after logout anything not changed.


gsettings set org.gnome.mutter experimental-features "['scale-monitor-framebuffer']"

No output, anything not changed. I can’t see scale in display section of gnome settings.


gsettings set org.gnome.desktop.interface scaling-factor 0.5

If I type 0.5 as 2 it makes bigger. But I can’t give floating numbers.

invalid character in number:
  0.5

If the issue persists, you can test Fedora 34 beta in a few days.
