Some applications have a huge interface

I've recently installed Ubuntu-Mate on a recent, bare-metal laptop. Some of my applications are appearing with a huge interface - fonts and windows. I suspect these are QT . For example, VirtualBox and Kate, are unusable. It appears that the DPI is all wrong. It is not a monitor issue, all of which are standard DPI (not HiDPI).

I have tried to correct it via Kvantum but it doesn't seem to have setting that affects the DPI. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated to correct this problem.

Welcome @MaxKa to the community!

I ran the ubuntu updater today and now everything seems to be corrected. Both Kate and Virtualbox seem to be at the same dpi as the rest of the system.

The following are the log updates:
