Hi community,

I'm using XFCE 4.18 and LightDM on EndeavourOS and facing a problem related to my HiDPI settings. I'm using an LG 5K screen with resolution 5120x2160. For things to be reasonably sized, I've set my display scale to 1.2 via Settings Manager -> Display -> General -> Scale.

This works perfectly until the screen gets locked *automatically*. As soon as I wake the system up, the scale is set 1.0 and I have to reset it to 1.2 every time. I can already see the wrong scale on the XFCE lockscreen login.

Curiously, it doesn't happen when I lock the screen *manually*.

I tried to understand which exact values get set to 1.0 using this for loop:

`for i in $(xfconf-query -c displays -l | grep Scale); do echo $i; xfconf-query -c displays -p $i; done`

But it seems like none of the values are changing. When I go to Settings Manager, the scale is at 1x instead of 1.2x though.

I'd appreciate any ideas and thoughts!

This problem seems to be related to another issue with multi-monitor setups and a fix was applied to xfce-settings. I didn't yet have a chance to test it but for anybody interested here is the GitLab issue: https://gitlab.xfce.org/xfce/xfce4-sett … note_86216
