I have a 2880x1620 onboard display and a 1080p external display that I
use for my computer. As far as I can tell xorg does not allow for
different scaling options for two separate displays. Based on
settings-18-04 I logged in with Wayland and thought I had achieved the
effect I wanted. However, after I started using my computer, I realized
that some applications were still scaled based on the display I set to
be primary. I have my 1080p display set as primary. Firefox, for
example, looks just fine on my primary, but when I move it to the
higher-DPI display, it does not look correct.
