Icewm ugly fonts

Post by laslo_one » 9. Jun 2019, 07:51

Hey, guys! I'm new to this forum, but i run Slackware (Salix) for quite a long time now.
All this time i've been using XFCE or LXDE and i didn't have any problems with font rendering, but
recently i've installed salix core + icewm and my fonts are very ugly. Here is what i've tried
to do to improve my font rendering problem:

1. I've recompiled freetype with subpixel rendering option
2. I've installed extra fonts (+ Windows 8 fonts)
3.
cd /etc/fonts/conf.d
ln -s /etc/fonts/conf.avail/10-hinting-full.conf (I use 10-hinting-slight.conf, but you mentioned you like full)
ln -s /etc/fonts/conf.avail/10-sub-pixel-rgb.conf
ln -s /etc/fonts/conf.avail/11-lcdfilter-default.conf

Xft.dpi: 96
Xft.antialias: 1
Xft.hinting: 1
Xft.hintstyle: hintfull
Xft.lcdfilter: lcddefault
Xft.rgba: rgb
Xft.autohint: 0
What else could i do??

Here how my fonts look like

Fonts on icewm are fine here. Since you installed the core group of packages of salix, you miss packages need from basic group.
Run

Code: Select all

sudo update-all
to see if this solves the problem.
