    Phoronix: KDE Now Supports Fractional Scaling On Wayland

    While KDE's new goals will include focusing on Wayland support, a big TODO item was just crossed off the list this week... KDE Plasma finally supports fractional scaling under Wayland...

    That's a biggie. The UI design also looks very sane to me and seems to allow per output scaling. Really great job by Roman!

      Great work, thank you Roman! Much appreciated. The 2x scaling worked badly depending from the screen size and font dpi was only a partial workaround on Wayland.

        Progress here is great, but KDE will continue to look embarrassingly ugly and unprofessional until they address the KDE library bug that causes ugly horizontal lines with many KDE apps like Konsole, KDevelop, kate, and kwrite.

        I know it's purely aesthetic. But looks matter. Seeing compiz on my coworker's Linux desktop is part of the reason I'm using Linux today. Today I'd be embarrassed if my coworker came over and saw this.

          That's not a KDE bug, it's Qt bug or side effect of rendering + graphic driver. Actually i saw that works correct but apparently start showing these lines on Qt update. So when it's fixed in the core of the problem, all will start to work. Also it should be tested on Wayland as well, rendering there is different.

            Hmmm, Compiz had more that it's fair share of bugs, crashes and general errant behaviour.

              This took a while to happen, good.

                At least under openSUSE TW the bug was fixed weeks ago. Not sure if it came as part of Qt 5.13 or a KF5 update but it's definitively gone here.

                  Whatever this is, as long as it doesn't turn every rando away from linux because it's a non-functioning screen tearing/black screen POS- I'm good with it.

                  Along that train of thought, it would be really swell if you kde imbeciles focused on your "Holy crap, It's on Fire!" bugs after this "more shit to break" patch is finished. I am so, so very beyond tired of making excuses for you.

                  Why is Bob seizing up on the floor from this new 'REM screen tearing' feature that has no epilepsy warning?

                  Why am I booting to a black screen when the video driver is properly installed?

                  I don't know. But there are only so many times I can try to explain that kde is NOT Linux, before people flip me off.

                  In short KDE- Fix yer shit, numbnuts.

                    It was not fixed in TW. I still see those lines in Konsole...
