Bug ID: 1036220
Summary: Font hinting and aliasing not properly configured on
fresh Fedora 19 install.
QA Contact: extras-qa(a)fedoraproject.org
Created attachment 830756
These are the configurations for 10-antialias.conf and 10-hinting-slight.conf
Description of problem:
The fonts in Fedora 19 look odd, thin and the font alignment is totally off
resulting in unreadable or very poor quality text. Setting Gnome Shell's or
even Mate's anti-aliasing font-configuration here does nothing to enhance text
quality. Web-pages in browsers such as Chrome and Firefox look ugly and
strange. Other Linux distributions such as Ubuntu and Unixes like Mac OS X do
not have this problem, on fresh installs fonts look crisp, beautiful and full.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Fedora release 19 (Schrödinger’s Cat)
Do a fresh install of Fedora 19 from the install images, look at the fonts.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Do a fresh install of Fedora 19 from the install images.
2. Attempt to use the desktop environment settings to adjust the font aliasing
3. Look at text rendering versus that in other distributions.
Text is rendered in a very odd and thin way, kerning is also off and the fonts
characters are misaligned, in Fedora resulting in a degraded visual experience
especially in web-browsers,
Text should render in a similar beautiful and smooth fashion the way it does on
other Linux distributions such as Ubuntu and Unixes such as Mac OS X.
Manual configuration is required to fix this by creating the proper symbolic
links between '/usr/share/fontconfig/conf.avail/' and '/etc/fonts/conf.d'
the following configurations which are installed in 'conf.avail' but just never
configured out of the box:
It also requires the creation of the following two font configurations which
are attached to this bug report and the creation of the corresponding symbolic
links in '/etc/fonts/conf.d':
