Hi Graham,
how can I enable VGA-switcheroo? I didn't find a way how I can enable it.

Setting fonts.fontconfig.dpi fixed scale issues with GTK applications also.

I tried enabling bumblebee on an older kernel (4.10). This works at runtime, but breaks booting — it seems that the nvidia card can't be active during boot otherwise the display just freezes. So what does work is booting without the nvidia module, switching to a configuration where it's enabled, manually unloading nouveau (requires stopping X server), manually loading nvidia, then restarting X and running applications in optirun. Needless to say, this sucks. The joys of proprietary drivers…
