[SOLVED] Wine Fonts Went Ugly

Good Afternoon Fellow Archers,


At some point in the last three weeks, my wine fonts have went south.

I only have one app in Wine that I use occasionally, so I am not sure which update, nor which calendar date the fonts went nasty.

They were looking as crisp as my MATE desktop, but something has changed it. I do not know if it is a Wine issue, or a DE issue, or??

I have followed the Arch Wine Wiki, and have not had any results. I'm puzzled.

Wine 1.9.19, Arch current on kernel 4.7.4-1 x64. My winearch is x32.

My .bashrc is:

#
# ~/.bashrc
#

# If not running interactively, don't do anything
[[ $- != *i* ]] && return

alias ls='ls --color=auto'
PS1='[\u@\h \W]\$ '
export WINEARCH=win32
export WINEPREFIX=$HOME/.wine/
export PATH="$PATH:$HOME/Shell-Scripts"
export VDPAU_DRIVER=nvidia

I used WineTricks to install the fonts when I first setup Wine. And yes, the mscorefonts is in there.

I am not sure where to look. Can someone give me some pointers on how to remedy?

Thank You!

Sincerely and respectfully,

Dave

EDIT: I also have XFCE4 installed. I switched to that DE and the issue remains. So it is not MATE, nor the WM underneath it.

Thank you for the post. I appreciate it.

I did just that. Unfortunately, the issue remains.

Sincerely and respectfully,

Re: [SOLVED] Wine Fonts Went Ugly

Wine uses freetype to render fonts, and freetype's defaults changed a few releases ago. I am using this environment setting for wine programs:

FREETYPE_PROPERTIES="truetype:interpreter-version=35"

which simply returns to the old default that works fine for me.

Re: [SOLVED] Wine Fonts Went Ugly

The environment variable was the magic. I added it to my .bashrc, and it works.

THANK YOU!
