No need to compile anything: you can just update to a newer libwebkitgtk - then Geary (and other applications like e.g. the WiFi login window) will use that instead of the old one. I think the issue was fixed in 2.4.9, but the version currently available in the repository is 2.4.8. sudo add-apt-repository ppa:webkit-team/ppa sudo sed -i s/trusty/vivid/g /...

This largely works for me: xrandr --output eDP1 --scale 1x1 --pos 3840x0 ; xrandr --output HDMI1 --scale 2x2 --mode 1920x1080 --fb 7680x2160 --pos 0x0 Only downside is the topbar seems to get in the way on my laptop screen. Obviously you'll need to adjust if you don't have same resolution as I do. Afraid there is no GUI solution yet. I just popped this ...

I had a similar problem. Following a little bit from https://askubuntu.com/questions/884249/how-to-generate-config-monitors-xml-file-from-a-script 'Display Settings' and click 'Apply'. This will create ~/.config/monitors.xml In the terminal sudo nano ~/.config/monitors.xml Add or edit the following inside the <logicalmonitor> node. So monitors > ...

It's a problem with the different DPI of the monitors. I have resolved it in this way with xrandr: xrandr --dpi 276 --fb 1920x1080 --output eDP-1 --off --output DP-1 --off --output DP-2 --scale 1x1 --panning 1920x1080 --auto Note that this turns off the laptop display. You can play around with the settings a bit and even use the graphical tool ...

The elementary team were kind enough to review and accept my patch which is now in trunk! It should be available in Loki's greeter release whenever it next gets an update I believe. Again, this just addresses the 2x2 glitch during the login transition with HiDPI mode and the two bug reports mentioned are likely still open issues. Those bugs are likely due to ...

Unfortunately, the current Linux desktop supports only one scale factor for the entire desktop, so either you scale down your HiDPI monitor, or you get double size on your external. I have a very similar setup and the simple work-around I use now is to set the laptop display to 1280 x 720 in System Settings > Displays. For more info check out these blog ...

This isn't really a complete answer, and is probably less of a manual solution, but I'm hoping we can use Pop!_OS new solution in some way... I understand this is done by the system76-hidpi-daemon which is part of the system76-driver Install instructions: http://support.system76.com/articles/system76-driver/ I, however, have no idea if it's a good idea to ...

It's not currently possible to build Geary with WebKit2. You would have to branch the source code and manually port it (not a trivial task and not something it's possible to list steps for).
