Very big problem with displaying fonts!

Postby distar » Feb 10th, '21, 21:27

The fonts are "blind"! Not only does a 10pt font take 9pt (corrected by changing the dpi to 96 in the KDE font settings), but they are also fuzzy. Anti-aliasing settings do not bring relief. The monitor is identified by the system correctly, the parameters correspond to the passport requirements. Note that Mageia6 did not have such a problem - the fonts displayed amazingly.

Desktop environment: KDE default, probably Plasma.
Antialiasing/hinting I tried all possible configurations - it didn't get better, only worse. If you enable hinting, the font becomes even less readable.
Now I set the KDE fonts in the settings - DPI = 104. I will not say what has become good, but at least somehow you can work.

The problem is localized at the level of the included Firefox - on Chromium it is also from the distribution, there are no problems with displaying fonts

Chromium on top, FireFox on the bottom. Masting is disabled, DPI reassignment using KDE tools is disabled. Anti-aliasing - disabled
