On debian (testing) with gnome 3.30.2 I am unable to change the
text-scaling-factor to 1.25. Neither the tweak-tool nor using the
gsettings command works:
As you can see on the screenshot the plus option is grayed out.
Using this command:
gsettings set org.gnome.desktop.interface text-scaling-factor 1.25
I get this error:
The provided value is outside of the valid range
Using the command line I can set the scaling factor to something equal to or below 1, but every value greater than 1 gives me the above error.
I am absolutely certain I was able to do this a few days ago. I do not remember installing any updates since then. Several reboots and logouts did not fix the problem. I would like to avoid uninstalling/reinstalling software since this is a relatively new debian install and I doubt it would help.
Linux T470s 4.19.0-5-amd64 #1 SMP Debian 4.19.37-3 (2019-05-15) x86_64 GNU/Linux
Are there any logs I can look at to see what's wrong? How can I make that option available again?
I have tried turning the "Large Text" accessibility option on but that didn't help either.
