Hello everybody, I just installed F25 on my Asus Zenbook UX305UA. It has a QHD+ (3200x1800px) 13" display. Everything is kind of smooth, but all the QT applications I need (QTCreator, VLC) and GTK2 (Hexchat) are kind of bad on HiDPI. I tried Googling and searching, but nothing came up - except setting export QT_AUTO_SCREEN_SCALE_FACTOR=1, but the rendering is still very bad and the widgets are kind of pixel-ly. Can somebody help me?

GTK2 can't be scaled as for vlc I wouldn't bother trying to scale as it has major issues

Gtk2, as stated above, cannot address the problem as it was created much earlier than hidpi displays were even imagined.

Rather, I have a question. Does a hidpi display really make a difference (say, a 4k 27") when already using a high level 27" ips? No games, but a lot of reading. Quality of picture and colours is of paramount importance.
