font problem: character spacing [Solved]

Post by kutte128 » Fri Apr 05, 2013 14:31


since the last updates i have a new annoying font problem with character spacing in gtk-progs.
I've never seen this before.

I didn't change anything. It happens in KDE and xfce4


this did the trick:
eselect fontconfig enable 52-infinality.conf
eselect infinality set infinality
eselect lcdfilter set infinality

it was set already but i needed it to do again

I had a font problem too with GTK apps in KDE after the last update. Mine was the opposite problem with characters being squashed together. I still applied your solution and it does seem to have fixed it, so thanks for the post.
