Fonts rendering very pixelated/jagged system-wide

https://0x0.st/oF_D.png

I think the title about sums it up. You can see the effects above. The fact that it's happening in the browser as well leads me to believe that this is an issue with the system rendering fonts rather than something to do with fonctconfig - though I'm not too well versed in this, so I might be wrong. Please let me know of some common failure points that I might want to look into.

Re: Fonts rendering very pixelated/jagged system-wide

Update: the Kitty terminal seems to be the only application immune to the font weirdness. Applications that I have observed to have this bug include Qutebrowser, Nautilus, Alacritty, Typora, Emacs, etc. Not sure what to do. I don't think it's just me misinstalling GNOME or QT due to the wide variety of applicatoins having this issue

Re: Fonts rendering very pixelated/jagged system-wide

You are probably just using a suboptimal default font here. What do you get for

fc-match sans
fc-match serif
fc-match monospace

Re: Fonts rendering very pixelated/jagged system-wide

I got Noto Sans, Noto Serif, and Noto Mono. However, I have configured almost all of my applications to use Iosevka and Lora as the system fonts. Those were working great until yesterday evening, when every font in my system started looking funny (like in the screenshot above) except for in the kitty terminal.

Logging into GNOME causes the error to continue, so I presume that this is not just an xorg error.
