Enjoying proper HD-DPI in Ubuntu 15.04

My Lenova Yoga 3HE laptop has an über display with a resolution of 3200x1800. It has been working fine in Ubuntu for a long time except for some applications, like Google Chrome, not really scaling everything as it should. For instance, the tabs in Chrome where very very tiny. However, now there is a simply fix. Simply jump on the xorg-edgers ppa (found here) and then do a:

sudo apt-get dist-upgrade

Aaah, much better :)
