Because I haven't figured out how to get Mint/Ubuntu font rendering quality in a stock Debian installation, I thought I would be clever by installing LMDE and immediately moving to Wheezy. And, sure enough, the standard Mint font rendering vanished.
Here's what I did: Installed LMDE; updated LMDE; edited sources.list to comment out all Mint repos and add Debian repos; apt-get update, apt-get upgrade, apt-get dist-upgrade, reboot. Worked just fine. Except for that font rendering thing.
How can I do this *and* maintain LMDE's font rendering? Do I need to blacklist certain packages?
(Meanwhile, if anyone can point me to guidance on getting Mint/Ubuntu font rendering in Debian, I'd smile at ya. The Debian community doesn't seem fond of the question.)
