I bought a 4K monitor five years ago specifically to get my programs working at 4K. 4K is *really* nice when all programs that one uses support it.

157 dpi. It is a 28 inch 4K desktop monitor.

157 dpi is not all that high. I will likely buy an 8K monitor once they come down in price.

Well, why not run it at full resolution but set KDE (or whichever desktop you use) to scale it up?

The Arch wiki has some good tips & pointers for you: https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/HiDPI

This is Linux man. There's always a way.

I run my 4K monitor at full resolution.

Thanks for the link! I see that

Code:
export GDK_SCALE=2
export GDK_DPI_SCALE=0.5
produces usable icons in GTK3 programs.
