Maybe I should have been more clear.
Another problem could be that the widgetset sends wrong PPI value to
LCL. So check for Screen.PixelsPerInch (96 = 100%). If you build Lazarus

Thank you for the tip !
Since I have the same setup as the reporter I have applied the patch provided
in this bugreport, and then HighDPI works on Linux.
The buttons and images have a reasonable size, font looks normal...
So, from my point of view, that patch can be applied ASAP :)
