I have no complaints from TDE on 2560x1080 anywhere between 96 and 144 DPI. It
obeys Xorg DPI.

Mozilla products (as most if not all GTK3 apps) are another matter, unless GTK3
is <3.17 or openSUSE Leap's patched GTK3. When not, Xft.dpi must be forced to
the DPI you wish used. If not set at all, upstream 3.17+ forces 96.

DPI in TDE desktop settings uses Xft.dpi as implementation method, but allows no
granularity via its UI. Via Xresources there is no such limitation.
