Re: [FIXED] Some problems with fonts

fontconfig installs 51-local.conf

<include ignore_missing="yes">local.conf</include>

So there ya go wink

Of course, it uses symlinks to confuse everyone between conf.avail and conf.d dirs sad

Re: [FIXED] Some problems with fonts

Well, to sum up:

1) With default fontconfig fonts look very sharp, but too wide.
2) With infinality fonts look good in size, but a bit blurry and inaccurate (especially on edges)

I have deleted all infinality stuff and am breaking my eyes with wide sharp fonts using this preset:

<!-- DPI -->
  <match target="pattern">
    <edit name="dpi" mode="assign"><double>96</double></edit>
  </match>

<!-- Hinting -->
  <match target="font">
    <edit name="hinting" mode="assign"><bool>true</bool></edit>
    <edit name="autohint" mode="assign"><bool>false</bool></edit>
    <edit name="force_autohint" mode="assign"><bool>false</bool></edit>
<!-- Style: hintfull, hintmedium, hintslight, hintnone -->
    <edit name="hintstyle" mode="assign"><const>hintfull</const></edit>

<!-- LCD filter: lcddefault, lcdlight, lcdlegacy, lcdnone -->
    <edit name="lcdfilter" mode="assign"><const>lcddefault</const></edit>

<!-- Subpixel rendering: rgb, bgr, v-rgb, v-bgr, none -->
    <edit name="rgba" mode="assign"><const>rgb</const></edit>
  </match>

Please, someone, how can I combine all advantages of default setup + infinality tweaks without breaking stuff?
I want really sharp fonts (like now) with adequate size (like in infinality) but without extra patches if possible.

Thanks if you can help!

P.S.: What's the real difference between lcd filters? (I can't see any, at least with my eyes O_o)

Re: [FIXED] Some problems with fonts

Huh. Default font aliasing was to blame: it used DejaVu family (which is too wide for me) by default, but now I assigned it to Liberation and everything looks so cool now!

This preset fixed the issue:

<!-- Aliases -->
  <alias>
    <family>serif</family>
    <prefer>
      <family>Liberation Serif</family>
    </prefer>
  </alias>
  <alias>
    <family>sans-serif</family>
    <prefer>
      <family>Liberation Sans</family>
    </prefer>
  </alias>

Except hieroglyphs. They still use ugly default bitmap fonts.
Would anyone mind recommending some cute font for hieroglyphs?

They are slightly different in the sub-pixel rendering at the font edges - ya have to look closely wink

I can only recommend you to try fontconfig-infinality-ultimate
