I totally agree that the size got missunderstood by gnome or whatever piece
of software made that assumption about size. I don't know how to change
that, nor did I choose this size. Clearly, as correctly assumed by you, the
external monitor should be larger than the internal display, rather than
smaller as defined by default. By the way, am I the only one having this
problem? Does no one else use an external, second monitor?

Are you mixing up size and resolution? I was talking about resolution, not
I found it strange, that the internal display with 4k has a higher
resolution than the external monitor with 1080p. But hey, things have
changed with Smartphones with 1080p displays or even higher resolutions
meanwhile ...

The external display is old, the notebook quite new, hence the difference in
pixel density. Well if you want to have it properly separated, this would
result in two different bug cases. One for the external monitor not working,
and the other for (OpenSUSE) not understanding that the external monitor is
physically larger than the internal display despite having less pixels. Other
OSes know this from somewhere.
