Just made a little script that makes all the missing symlinks (I hope I didn't miss any of them myself) and ran it as root.
Code: Select all
if [ x$WHOAMI != xroot ]; then
echo Please run me as root.
ln -s ../conf.avail/10-antialias.conf 10-antialias.conf
ln -s ../conf.avail/10-hinting.conf 10-hinting.conf
ln -s ../conf.avail/10-hinting-slight.conf 10-hinting-slight.conf
ln -s ../conf.avail/11-lcdfilter-default.conf 11-lcdfilter-default.conf
ln -s ../conf.avail/53-monospace-lcd-filter.conf 53-monospace-lcd-filter.conf
Font quality got better. Immediately.
Though I have some doubts about some of the fonts (not all of them) in Firefox. And I don't use Chrome.
Moreover, my eyes are quite tired from today's tinkering with all this font stuff, so I may have missed something. Just test this script please and see if it works for you.
Thanks a million, Monsta. Worked very well.
By way of background I updated to update 5 today and made the mistake of installing some new versions, against the advice of the release notes: Always choose "keep file" (as opposed to "install new version")
Anyhow, perhaps as a result, the fonts were horrible in Chromium. Monsta's script appears to have restored them.
Out of interest, my Terminal application also displayed black on black, ie, invisible. I've opened a new post on that - viewtopic.php?f=198&t=113073
