Originally reported by Michael Biebl to the Debian Bug Tracking System, see


since upgrading ttf-liberation from to, the letter 'u' and 'U' has become much "thiner" in
comparison to other letters. See the attached screenshot I took from the

I downgraded to the squeeze version again and the problem is gone, so
this is a regression of the new upstream release.

with the sans version.

I have to add, that I use LCD, RGB, and full hinting
