Re: Akregator Font Rendering Issue




I don't know if you've recently upgraded to 17.10 (Artful) but that's
know to ship with a bad release of libfreetype (2.8.0) that has severe
TrueType font hinting regression.

You can read everything about the bug here:
https://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=376630
https://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=378523

and the bug I reported at trolltech here:
https://bugreports.qt.io/browse/QTBUG-63792

Some people prefer to downgrade libfreetype to last known good, I went
the other way (upgraded to 2.8.1 and fixed kdeglobals and
trolltech.conf files).
