Pesky "E" on certain web sites in arch linux, help needed

Postby ludikure » Mon Dec 06, 2010 5:19 pm

Firstly, I would like to thank Infinality for doing a great job here. After installing freetype2-infinality from AUR and copying local.conf in my /etc/fonts directory my fonts looked much better. I also have .Xresources and .fonts.conf saved in my home directory.

Content of .Xresources is same as specified on the infinality.net and .fonts.conf have the same stuff in it as local.conf.

The issue is that "E" looks awkward on some websites, here are the screen shots of my desktop:

I have noticed that pesky "e" occurs only if I have ttf-ms-fonts installed and it only happens on certain web sites as I said earlier. If I don't install ttf-ms-fonts my "Es" look normal but then the rest of the fonts looks ok but not as sharp as with it installed.

P.S. my fonts are not as blur as they may look on the screen shots; they look quite sharp.

Once I posted my message here on the discussion board the ugly "e" is gone, it appears that only happen in the input box.

Here is the screen shot of my message after I posted it.

The "e" issue is in regards to Trebuchet MS. The latest patch I released fixes the issue. Are you using the latest patch? (2010-11-17)

I am using freetype2-infinality 2.4.4-1 from AUR, and the last time it was updated was on Dec 7, 2010.

Is there a way I could replace Trebuchet MS by some other font inf local.conf?

You may be able to try something like this:

Code: Select all
        <match target="font" >
                <test name="family" qual="any" >
                        <string>Trebuchet MS</string>
                </test>
                <edit mode="assign" name="family" >
                        <string>Arial</string>
                </edit>
        </match>
        <match target="pattern" name="family" >
                <test name="family" compare="eq" target="default">
                        <string>Trebuchet MS</string>
                </test>
                <edit binding="strong" mode="prepend" name="family" >
                        <string>Arial</string>
                </edit>
        </match>

I should have searched before making my new thread about this. I have the same issue, I am using your latest packages in the fedora 15 repo.

I'll try the workaround with replacing the font with another.
