Bug Description

clicking the gear does nothing.

xrandr says the resolution is 2560x1600. when i take a screenshot with the Screenshot tool, it is 1280x800.

i can change the resolution with:

xrandr --output eDP1 --mode 2560x1600
xrandr --output eDP1 --mode 1920x1200
xrandr --output eDP1 --mode 1280x960

the interface is too big with lower resolutions. maybe the native resolution should get used.

my idea was to use a lower resolution to workaround this high-dpi problem:

an option to scale the interface would be helpful.
