(xfce) setting display scaling to 125%

Hello,

on an older laptiop i have a nice 1920x1200 native resolution,

but legibility is poor due to TN Panel, and admittedly it is a bit small to read (maybe my eyes need more training)


so i'd like to set the display "fractional scaling" to 125% , a bit like on Windows 10.


Only setting i have found is to set manually tthe "DPI" value which atm is set to "96".


Can someone please show me how to achieve this on XFCE without the need to resort to XRandr?


Thanks.

Looks like Xfce can only do integer scaling: https://wiki.archlinux.org/title/HiDPI#Xfce

For Grub sizes check this https://pierre.baudu.in/other/grub.vga.modes.html

I use vga=794, Looks good on my desktop.

FWIW, I am running KDE Plasma and it allows scaling by 125%.  Under System settings -> Display and monitor -> Display configuration, set global scale.
