Post by: Giovanni62 on November 07, 2020, 09:14:05 pm
Is it possible to eliminate the "spiral binding" effect?

Operating system?
I think there is a forum thread, with exact the same problem. I think there was a solution....

There isn't. Someone should debug why this happens.

Giovanni62: What is your OS and DPI?

Sadly i don't have any HighDPI system, so i can not reproduce this...

What is the physical size of this monitor? 96x96 is low/normal dpi monitor. What is the value of the GTK scaling setting?

My monitor is LG 32UL750-WA

I set the dots per inch to 192 in .Xresources

Code: [Select]
Xft.dpi:       192
and set the scale factor to 200%

Nothing has changed!

Ubuntu 20.04 uses wxgtk based on Gtk3. You have to setup GTK3 to have 2.0 scaling. If you can do it this should work fine in C::B, too. You have to restart C::B for settings to take effect. Also a logout-login might be required.

p.s. 4k on 32 inch is not 192 dpi...

I set
Code: [Select]
Xfi.dpi:   138

Is it right?

What is not working?
The artefact on your image in the first post would be present if the scaling factor is bigger than 1.0.
So, if you see the artefact then you're definitely running in HiDPI mode.

Any test I have done has not given a good result

Yes, it is.
