Solus 3 Budgie doesn't scale on 14" FullHD display

Hi!

New to this place, and love Solus, on all my devices except my IdeaPad, where everything looks way too small.

The laptop has a FullHD 14" screen, and has NVIDIA GeForce 920M graphics card installed.

I've come to understand that scaling doesn't work well on Budgie 10.4. I tried to use gsettings to set the Gnome scaling factor of 2 (or anything), but it doesn't work. Nothing happens when I enter the following command:

Code: Select all

gsettings set org.gnome.desktop.interface scaling-factor 2


I'm uncomfortable working with xrandr (I've not quite understood Linux enough to deal with that).

I do not get 1366x768 as one of the available resolutions to set (I'm fine with 1366x768; I have a 14" screen).

Please help me with this situation.

Here's relevant information from lspci

Code: Select all

00:02.0 VGA compatible controller: Intel Corporation Skylake GT2 [HD Graphics 520] (rev 07)
01:00.0 3D controller: NVIDIA Corporation GK208BM [GeForce 920M] (rev a1)
Thank you!
