[Bug 1515767] Re: Nautilus does not follow HIDPI setting


The issue is specific to nautilus (as far as I've seen). It usually
returns after a session restart (killing and relaunching nautilus fixes
the issue). I've attached a before and after image to illustrate the
issue, with gedit providing a control to show the 1.75 DPI scaling

** Attachment added: "Nautilus without correct scaling"

  Nautilus does not follow HIDPI setting

Status in nautilus package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  Since upgrading from 15.04 to 15.10, nautilus does not follow the
  HIDPI settings from System Settings -> Screen Display after
  boot/login. Restarting nautilus corrects corrects this and it follows
  the HIDPI settings.

  1) Ubuntu 15.10
  2 nautilus:
    Installed: 1:3.14.2-0ubuntu13
    Candidate: 1:3.14.2-0ubuntu13
    Version table:
   *** 1:3.14.2-0ubuntu13 0
          500 http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ wily-updates/main amd64 Packages
          100 /var/lib/dpkg/status
       1:3.14.2-0ubuntu12 0
          500 http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ wily/main amd64 Packages

  3) I expect HIDPI settings to be followed on boot/login without restarting nautilus
  4) HIDPI settings are only followed after killing and restarting nautilus
