KDE System Settings allow fractional scaling. So probably should be
fixed in System Settings (except there are other Toolkits that support
fractional scaling).


Qt does support fractional scaling (and quite well, in my opinion). Try using QT_SCALE_FACTOR=1.35 for example.

Meanwhile KDE System settings allows you to set some scaling that seems fractional, however it's not. In the range of 1.0-1.4 you're just making your fonts bigger and at 1.5 widgets are suddenly scaled 2x.
