If network manager, you could cat the files stored in /etc/NetworkManager/system-connections/?

Phone posting, so that last directory may be named differently than I am recalling. You'll need root access.

I have a new XPS 13 with 4k screen running Fedora 29 with KDE. I love the laptop to death but I have to force a higher DPI to make things readable on the laptop screen since it's only 13 inches. However, I also bought a 32 inch monitor and a fancy Dell dock so I can look at the bigger screen when I am working from home. The scaling makes everything look blurry when the laptop is docked. I am wondering if there is a way to enable scaling when the display is output via the laptop screen BUT disable scaling when the display is over the 4k monitor? So far, all I've been able to do is adjust the DPI manually (which requires me to log out and back in again to take effect).

Which version of which desktop environment, backed by which display protocol?

If itís anything X, no.

I think I heard about Gnome under wayland getting support for mixed dpi displays, but I donít have any first hand experience with it.

No idea about KDE, but if wayland supports mixed dpi it should get support... eventually.

I just set my internal display to 1080p when external displays are plugged in. Usually the WM will revert it back to 4K when you unplug them.

Could you not use xrandr to scale the lower DPI monitor after setting dpi to the 4k monitor?

Man xrandr and look at --dpi, --mode and --scale. I can't test this so I'm not 100% sure this will work.

Edit: If you are using X. If Wayland, please ignore.

I like the new KDE a lot and have kept neon as a backup distro for over a year now. I normally don't prefer GUIs and daily drive a tiling window manager.

It isn't without its problems. Dolphin had a file move bug that is now reported as fixed. I've never trusted it and used the command line instead.

Edit: Actually, looks like the silent fail may still be there. Theres another ticket request if you follow the comments.
