What's the impact of this one ? Will scaling of 1.68 effectively result in 2X scaling ?

This will not affect unity scaling, neither text scaling. Just gtk
window scaling that is integer. So yes 1.68 will be 2.

Will test shortly on 14" and 17" machines, though I expect to see some issues with text size, qt scaling, etc.

David Jordan (dmj726) wrote :

The sudden switch in scaling factor when the user manually picks say 1.68 is pretty jarring, and I'm not sure it would be readily understood why it's happening, especially when text size changes at each step.

Let's leave the manual scaling alone and just focus on defaulting to scales we can represent perfectly.

Actually, digging into this more, I'd say this is a minor improvement (moving the sudden, size increase to 1.5x instead of having the jump at 2x), so I'm definitely fine with this patch.

It's not a fix for bug #1649736 though.
