  Ubuntu Mono is too small

Status in fonts-ubuntu package in Ubuntu:
  Fix Released

Bug description:
  EDIT: I don't believe this is as strongly related to px sizes or hidpi
  as I first suggested, but a more general issue.

  Many applications expect the user to configure font sizes in px units.
  For example, PyCharm, VSCode. In a hidpi screen (3000x2000) using 2x
  scaling factor, Ubuntu Mono looks considerably smaller than other
  popular monospaced fonts at the same px size. This is not only a
  problem of setting a different pixel size when one wants to use Ubuntu
  Mono but a much worse issue: complex applications often use heuristics
  to set font sizes of different elements of the GUI according to the
  base size set for the main font and having to scale Ubuntu Mono to px
  sizes larger than the usual ones distorts the size of other GUI
  elements to the point of ugliness or even unusability.

  For example: https://github.com/microsoft/vscode/issues/88916, but I
  have many similar problems with PyCharm also.
