Wrong scaling LMMS 1.2.x (Linux Mint).

Having trouble with LMMS? Ask about it here.
Hello everyone!

I use LMMS 1.1.3 (installed by the terminal / software manager).
And it works perfectly:

But then i found out about the new version and downloaded it from the official site (.AppImage).
So it starts with the wrong scale (it`s like Hi-DPI user interface scaling in "General" settings):

I have Linux Mint 19.1 Cinnamon 4.0.10, 1920x1080 display (screen) resolution.
Hope for your help or any ideas!

Best regards,
Ivan.

Aua... :|
First possible reason: Did you remember to completely un-install your 1.1.3 installation, before you installed the 1.2.1 AppImage?
Afair, there was an attempt to hack a rescale, in the quite dated 1.1.3..
If you did not un-install, and got rid of the config file for 1.1.3, you could get strange results.
So lets start there :) Next step is a linux manifest-file, but afaik, that should not be needed after 1.2x

Sorry for this delay musikbear!
As you can see at the second screenshot, i have two versions of LMMS at the same time.
Installed v1.1.3 and launched v1.2.1.
I did not install v1.2.1, i just ran it (because it is .AppImage).
Make the App-image installable
This step in the instructions... How can i make the App-image installable?
I can make it runnable, not installable. :(

That would lead to problems. There is only one configuration-file, and that would attempt to set features for both installations. 1.1.3 is different form 1.2.1 in very many ways, so you will get problems. That is simply expected!
There is no reason for 1.1.3. I have projects made on 0.0.3 from 2009, and they run on 1.2.1!
You are not doing yourself any favours, with a 1.1.3 installation, on the contrary!
My advice is to have one 1.2.1 installation on your primary computer, and if you have something pc-like in the bottom of a basement, for all means install 1.1.3 on that machine
Then forgedaboudit :p

Thats properly the correct way, im not strong in Linux-lingoe, so i may have used a wrong term, i think i should have said "make it executable"
