run_scaled - Man Page

run an X11 application upscaled or downscaled

Synopsis

run_scaled [--scale=VALUE] application [application-arguments]

run_scaled [--scale=VALUE] [xpra-arguments] -- application [application-arguments]

Description

run_scaled uses xpra(1) to show any X11 application with arbitrary scaling applied.

Examples

run_scaled xterm -ls

Starts the command "xterm -ls", with the default scaling of 2.
The xterm window will be twice as big as it normally would be.

run_scaled --scale=250% firefox

Start firefox, upscaled by 250%.

run_scaled --speaker=off --microphone=off -- wine notepad.exe

Starts the command "wine notepad.exe", with audio inputs and outputs disabled (by additional Xpra arguments) and the default scaling of 2.

Options

--scale=VALUE

The scaling factor to apply, specified as:

number

ie: 2, 1.5

fraction

ie: 3/2

percentage

ie: 250%

If unspecified, the default value is 2.

Limitations

The scaling value is limited to the range 0.1 to 10, and even within that range, values lower than 1 may not work correctly with large displays.
