Running on HiDPI screen
Running Bisq on a HiDPI screen (2k, 4k, etc) with default settings often leads to small text.
This article covers how to fix this issue on Linux.

To be able to launch the fix by double clicking an icon, rather than running a command in CLI, you can edit the launcher file to run, instead of the Bisq app directly, a shell script which injects said fix.

/opt/bisq/Bisq-runner.sh) containing the following code:
#!/bin/bash JAVA_TOOL_OPTIONS="-Dglass.gtk.uiScale=1.4" /opt/bisq/bin/Bisq
2. Make it executable:
chmod +x /opt/bisq/Bisq-runner.sh
3. Edit the launcher file (
/usr/share/applications/Bisq.desktop) by opening it in a text editor and modifying the
Exec line like follows:
