Stripping the bundled Qt libs still results in unreadable PDFs on HiDPI systems.

The link has broken.

Is the scaling issue resolved by using the included qt libraries?

Others seem to have the same problem, including windows users. Some report it is fixed, some still have problems (last comment from 2017-01-19).

Sorry to see that qt 5.7.1 does not resolve all problems, i've inlcuded it again. I'll give it another try when the next dev version comes along.

Same issue here as @jierumei, see the attached screenshot for comparison:

Additionally, I always get the following logs:
> QXcbIntegration: Cannot create platform OpenGL context, neither GLX nor EGL are enabled
> WebEngineContext used before QtWebEngine::initialize() or OpenGL context creation failed.

It works fine though, but I assume it uses software rendering rather than GPU rendering.

with qt5.7.1 the pdf show in an abnormal way in HiDPI, which makes it unusable.

removed the bundled qt again. qt 5.7.1 packages resolve the problem.

updated to 1.17.2, still not working with qt 5.7.0. Maybe the 18 branch will bring us that.

Okay, thanks.
Isn't it possible to force Mendeley to use Qt5.7?

gaelic commented on 2016-09-19 08:30

The problem seems to be that mendeley is compiled against qt5webengine 5.5 and while archlinux is at 5.7. Therefore the package does not remove the bundled qt anymore, making it somewhat big ... but working.
