My display is 4k. When I run VMWare, my linux guests look like postage stamps. Sadly, none of them support HDPI scaling (Running LXDE/XFCE mainly). I'm also interested in "Unity Mode", but unfortunately, the linux windows are unusably tiny as they're rendered at normal scale (1/4 the size).
I can think of a few ways to solve this
- Get a HDPI aware Linux that also works well in a VM (*cough* GNOME *cough*)
- Scale the VM output in VMWare
- Scale VMWare (with the High DPI Scaling settings or whatnot)
Unfortunately, I have not been successful at any of these attempts. Is there any way to achieve what I want?
