you can try adding a --force-device-scale-factor flag to the .desktop file

Exec= /opt/google-chat-linux/google-chat-linux --force-device-scale-factor=1.5 %U

I did not try myself, see

Or ... you may try to play with the css but good luck, google made an incredible mess of its css.

How to change the font size?

-6 fixes the symlink. Really sorry for the mess :)

damn, sorry about that, fixed in -5 release ... but not sure the symlink works. I did not find a proper documentation about this and ... obviously the one I used only works with a local makepkg which is lame. Damn, will have to try again.

Update to 5.27.23-3 fails - source not found!

@chowbok : Indeed ! I've just added it.

Thanks for this. In keeping with general Arch packaging practice, though, it should probably add a symlink in /usr/bin.

Thanks a lot. It's possible add Tweaks for Google Chat extension ?
