 Sorry for reply late, looks I miss the last change.

 And the answer is No, the previous patch which change ubiquity was
rejected by Seb, and Seb helped make the above patch(#72), my work just
based on his patch. Thanks!

  Account creation during first boot of an OEM image needs to scale
  based on resolution

Status in OEM Priority Project:

Bug description:
  The ubiquity window size display in HiDPI screens is small.

  The new gSettings to scale GTK applications (and their corresponding
  settings in System Settings) work great, but this does not help for
  the account creation (first boot) for users buying a pre-install

  We would need changes in Ubiquity to:

   * Probe the monitor to get resolution information
   * Re-scale the ubiquity window using the corresponding gsetting (com.ubuntu.user-interface scale-factor) based on resolution

  We would need the changes to be backported to Trusty as well.

  [Test Case]
  1. Install image on a system with HiDPI panel
  2. Check the ubiquity window size displayed on screen

  Expected Result:
  The window size should be reasonable for user to read the content.

  Actual Result:
  The window size is small and user is hard to read the content.
