Vivado for HiDPI displays under linux

Recently I purchased a laptop with a 15″ 4K display. While I like the real estate, my eyes are stating to hurt with the unscaled text in Vivado. For those who might be hitting the same condition, here is a solution:

There is a program called “run_scaled”:

sudo apt-get install xpra (make sure it’s version >= 2.0. For Ubuntu 16.04, download the .deb from: http://www.xpra.org)
sudo apt-get install xvfb

Download the script: https://github.com/kaueraal/run_scaled

to use:

run_scaled -scale=1.5 vivado
