[SOLVED] Blown out Steam UI on Ubuntu 23.04, 4K display
I just opened steam to chill playing Dredge (go check it out if you haven’t heard about it! 🎣) to find out that suddenly a steam client update broke the UI. I have a 4K monitor and the UI was extremely blown out, to the point of being barely usable.
A quick search online revealed that other users already hit the same issue, and a solution was readily available already from the steam community here.
- Locate your steam launcher script with:
In my case the launcher is located at
- Then, edit it to add
export GDK_SCALE=1right before the
exec "$LAUNCHSTEAMDIR/$STEAMBOOTSTRAP" "$@"line at the end.
You can edit the file with the command below:
sudo nano <path-to-steam-launcher>
And that should do the trick!
