New Neon user, Gnome (?) UI Scaling

Tue Dec 04, 2018 4:17 pm
Hullo (o:

I am an old nerd and programmer, know my way around a command line, not new to Linux altogether, last time I ran KDE was in the early aughts though.
Running Neon as a main OS for the first time.

I just bought a fairly nice system* with a really nice 4k screen to run Neon on, and am really loving the Neon UI (o:

I run KDE at 1.8 scale factor, set through the UI setting, and am well pleased with this.
I am having trouble with a few apps though, and infer that these are apps made for Gnome - specifically Sublime Text, Steam and Telegram, where some or all of the UI is really tiny. Telegram has a really tiny mouse pointer as well, something that doesn't happen in the other two.

I have tried setting the gnome scaling using various bash commands found via google, but nothing seems to have any effect, at all.

I am hoping I am just not finding the right command or control to set this correctly? Please advice (o:

Also, I hope this is the right board to ask about this in, apologies in advance if I am wrong.
