Scale display at 150%

I just installed Silverblue 36 on a new laptop. Its a 2K display. At 200% scale, everything is too big, but at 100% scale, its a little small for my eyes. Is there a way to set the scale to 125%, for example?

If you’re running wayland you can use:
gsettings set org.gnome.mutter experimental-features "['scale-monitor-framebuffer']"

to remove:
gsettings reset org.gnome.mutter experimental-features

That did work. It goes up by increments of 25%, so I set the scale to 125%.

Is there any way to tinker with it and try 110% or 115%?

Not sure, maybe try tweaking the values in ~./config/monitors.xml

Might also want to try changing font scaling in gnome tweaks.

I activated the fractional scaling - and for some apps it works fine. Other apps are still blurry. (Working on a 4k external monitor). Any ideas how to get this consitant?

I don’t have the answer to your question. But with the increasing prevalence of high DPI displays (my new ThinkPad is 2.8K OLED) fractional scaling in Fedora should be better.
