No noticable change (after reboot).

everything looks fine there.

After reverting to vanilla packages and installing infinality-bundle again nothing changed. I'll try installing ubuntu packages again and see if they work.

Re: infinality-bundle: good looking fonts made (even) easier

Are all files in /etc/fonts/conf.d symlinked correctly to /etc/fonts/conf.avail.infinality? Is it the only file you mentioned in your first post that you have in your ~/.config/fontconfig? What DE/WM are you using? What font settings did you set there?

One more thing: If you run any application in a terminal, does it output any fontconfig error messages?

And one more: check if infinality settings are loaded:

env | grep INFINALITY

Yes, they are.

Yes, and it's rather harmless.

Xmonad, it doesn't set any font related options afaik.
I also have this in Xresources:

Xft.autohint: 0
Xft.lcdfilter: lcddefault
! Xft.hintstyle: hintfull
Xft.hintstyle: hintslight
Xft.hinting: 1
Xft.antialias: 1
Xft.dpi: 96
Xft.rgba: rgb

but that should not be the case.

No, not a single one.

but...
it started working
... for some odd reason.
I installed ubuntu packages again to check if they work (they did). Then I installed your packages and they now work as well (nice job by the way, they are drastically better than previous release).
As far as I remember I had similar problems the last time I tried your bundle, though I think I had problems with getting ubuntu packages to work. Installing them over again (ubuntu -> infinality -> ubuntu -> infinality) few times also solved the problem. It would be good to investigate whether ubuntu or your packages cause it.

Just for completeness here's /var/log/pacman.log:

EDIT:
I've found the problem:
infinality-bundle doesn't work well if you don't have '~/.config/fontconfig/fonts.conf' file.
I was deleting it every time I installed your bundle since it enables 'hintslight', which I thought would overwrite infinality's 'hintfull' setting and I was restoring it after every *-ubuntu install.

My '~/.config/fontconfig/fonts.conf':

<?xml version='1.0'?>
<!DOCTYPE fontconfig SYSTEM 'fonts.dtd'>
<fontconfig>
    <match target="font">
        <edit mode="assign" name="rgba">
            <const>rgb</const>
        </edit>

        <edit mode="assign" name="hinting">
            <bool>true</bool>
        </edit>

        <edit mode="assign" name="hintstyle">

Re: infinality-bundle: good looking fonts made (even) easier

Thank you for reporting back. I'm glad it's working now and I have copied the log -- I will look into it and play with various upgrade paths. At the moment, I have no idea why a thing like this might have happened. I doubt that the bundle may be involved directly but I'll investigate the problem.

Re: infinality-bundle: good looking fonts made (even) easier

It's still odd -- here is my local fonts.conf for comparison:

<?xml version='1.0'?>
<!DOCTYPE fontconfig SYSTEM 'fonts.dtd'>
<fontconfig>

  <!-- Put custom global fontconfig settings in this file. -->

</fontconfig>

I use a couple of custom settings (like rejecting a few fonts that don't render nicely), but there are no duplicated settings from the global configuration whatsoever. This would mean that in your case the global options from 10-base-rendering.conf aren't applied correctly…

Edit: corrected src listing.

Re: infinality-bundle: good looking fonts made (even) easier

Exactly, same case for ubuntu rendering, my fonts.conf duplicates what fontconfig-ubuntu sets in '/etc/fonts/conf.d/10-*.conf' files.

Edit:
If I were to guess, it probably affects only standalone WMs, DEs usually set some font rendering options.

Re: infinality-bundle: good looking fonts made (even) easier

I don't know if this is intentional, but I just noticed that I cannot choose any bitmap font in GUI applications (gvim, gedit, smplayer, etc).

However bitmap font are visible and working (in urxvt for example).

Yes, it is intentional. If you don't like it deleting '/etc/fonts/conf.d/70-no-bitmaps.conf' should help. (although I'm not 100% sure, someone correct me if I'm wrong.)

Ok thanks. Deleting that file and 38-repl-tt-traced-bitmap.conf helped a lot with bitmap fonts.

Re: infinality-bundle: good looking fonts made (even) easier

Just for the record, to enable bitmap fonts, issue the following:

# cd /etc/fonts/conf.d
# rm 70-no-bitmaps.conf
# ln -s ../conf.avail.infinality/70-yes-bitmaps.conf .

If you want to use TTF fonts with bitmaps enabled, you'll need additionally

# ln -s ../conf.avail.infinality/32-tt-traced-bitmap-rendering.conf .
# ln -s ../conf.avail.infinality/38-repl-tt-traced-bitmap.conf .

Running standalone dwm here. wink

I would sooner expect some sort of access problem: Are you sure the remaining settings in /etc/fonts/conf.d/ are applied correctly?…

My conviction may be deceptive wink. How can I verify that?

Edit:
Changing hintfull to hintslight in my fonts.conf breaks 'ę' character rendering.

Re: infinality-bundle: good looking fonts made (even) easier

In the easiest possible way:

# mv /etc/fonts/conf.d{,.bkp}

Of course, temporarily only for debugging purposes.

As far as the hinting influencing diacritics is concerned: if everything is operating correctly, selected rendering is applied to fonts that need it. Then you will see no broken 'ę'. smile

Re: infinality-bundle: good looking fonts made (even) easier

Should users currently using fontconfig-ifninality switch to fontconfig-infinality-ultimate-git? I'm still using the former aur package and I guess I'm not clear whether the new one is a replacement or an alternative?

Re: infinality-bundle: good looking fonts made (even) easier

My recommendation is: switch to the bundle. The currently available AUR package will soon become the git version of fontconfig-infinality-ultimate (maintaining two technically entirely different things which are supposed to do the same is anything but wise). The git version will be probably used for testing new ideas and that's why it may be less stable than packages in the [infinality-bundle] repository. For everyday and production use, the bundle is the way to go.

Thanks. Can I install the bundle from AUR? I can't see a package infinality-bundle. I guess for some reason I'm reluctant to enable non-official repositories. (I'm sure yours is fine - I'm just paranoid.)

Please do not bump your posts. It is a violation of the forum rules. I assume nobody has answered in this thread because it is about a different topic. What do you think that package has to do with the infinality font configuration packages? You don't say...

Re: infinality-bundle: good looking fonts made (even) easier

@cfr, If you want super easy font configuration (meaning leaving it up to bohoomil), then using his repo is the way to go.  You can always go to his repo and manually download the packages and the install them with pacman -U if you really really don't want to enable his repo.  But I just want to throw out there that he has been helping me with fonts for quite some time, and I have certainly come to trust him as someone who is welcome to take care of fonts for my machine (I think I would probably be okay with brebs handling it as well... have you ever read some of his posts about font configuation?  These guys are crazy about fonts!).

+100

What is the best way to keep up with what happens with / inside the bundle? I see my fonts change rather drastically and this thread is relatively high-volume - is there a changelog, should I use git e.g. https://github.com/bohoomil/fontconfig- … 79b7aa3f99 or ...?

Re: infinality-bundle: good looking fonts made (even) easier

Hi bohoomil,

I changed my monospace font (via Gnome Tweak Tool) to Terminus Medium but it looks terrible.

Have a look: http://i.imgur.com/UnLgmAT.png

What could cause the problem?

Re: infinality-bundle: good looking fonts made (even) easier

Terminus TTF will look OK only at following sizes: 9px, 12px, 15px, 18px and 24px. These should work even without altering the default settings (they do in my case). However, you may want to take a look at this, especially the second box. Enabling 32-tt-traced-bitmap-rendering.conf and 38-repl-tt-traced-bitmap.conf may be a good idea.
