Bug Description


I installed Kubuntu 18.10. My notebook has a fullHD display so DPI scaling was needed. I set scaling to 1.2 but the ui of firefox and chromium browsers were still small. Then I set it to 1.3 and chromium looked OK but firefox still had small elements.

I think Kubuntu is the best linux desktop in dpiScaling point of view but there could be some improvements for better out of the box experience. All the settings should work fine for/with the desktop's default applications because everybody has a HD display nowadays.

Beside that it would be more comfortable if it shouldn't be needed to set the size of the panel and statusbar icons separately (by hacking configs).

These things are very important for a good user experience.
