Dear VMD users

I recently installed VMD (latest alpha version) on a UBUNTU 20.04 machine
with a 27" with a 3840x2160. I was very disappointed to see that the VMD
GUI looks very small, almost unusable.

I tried to use "run_scaled" and Xpra to no avail. Has anyone had success on
making VMD work on high-dpi monitors_? Or should I just go to a lower

On a related note, I also tried to use ssh X11 forwarding from a M1
macbookpro to the ubuntu machine and even though I managed to make it work,
the FPS was so poor that it was not worth it. Has anyone solved this issue
as well?

Thanks so much.

Raul Araya Secchi.
