KDE widget scaling on fresh install with Nvidia driver.


I have a fresh Arch installation on my desktop, with a GTX 1060 and the Nvidia proprietary driver.
I installed most packages from the kde-applications and the plasma groups.
The scaling of Klauncher and the Applications menu is huge, while the scaling of everything else, including KDE apps like dolphin, okular and kolourpaint, is normal.

Screenshots of the issue:

What I've already tried:




Section "Monitor"
    Identifier     "Monitor0"
    VendorName     "Unknown"
    ModelName      "Unknown"
    HorizSync       28.0 - 33.0
    VertRefresh     43.0 - 72.0
    Option         "DPMS"
    Option         "DPI" "96x96"


Section "Device"
    Identifier     "Device0"
    Driver         "nvidia"
    VendorName     "NVIDIA Corporation"
    Option         "UseEdidDpi" "False"
    Option         "DPI" "96x96"

Output of xdpyinfo | grep -B2 resolution:

screen #0:
  dimensions:    1920x1080 pixels (508x286 millimeters)
  resolution:    96x96 dots per inch

Setting 'Force Fonts DPI' to 96 in the fonts system settings module.

Selecting the minimal icon size for all classes under icon themes.

Selecting the minimal scale value (1) in 'Scale Display' in the displays system settings module.


In my older 4-yo installation, i also used KDE and had no such issue.
I remember that when I switched from my old ATI vga (with the open source drivers)
to the 1060 (with the proprietary driver), I had a similar issue, but the setting in 20-nvidia.conf solved the problem.
