New submission from A_D <aunderscored at gmail.com>:

When using scaling (as in root.tk.call('scaling', somenum)), some linux systems appear to simply disregard the change. 

I recently reinstalled from Ubuntu to OpenSUSE Tumbleweed and found that scaling straight up did not work in the application I tried or the test application -- https://github.com/Athanasius/tk-scaling. (image attached)

Tested on python 3.8.8 and 3.9.2 (pyenv)
