However: I upgraded from Linux Mint 18.3 Cinnamon to LM 19 Cinnamon and had to discover that the default Chinese font has changed. Now It is very hard to read, especially on HiDPi (examples from my terminal and a website).
I googled the hell out of this problem, but I can't figure out where the configuration file for this is. Where on earth do I decide which font is used, but only for the Chinese fonts?
- This site suggests to adapt something in
/etc/fonts/font.conf(which others and the file itself warn against).
- Some suggest editing
~/.config/fontconfig/, but the folder
fontconfigdoesn't exist on my (nearly freshly installed) LM. I created it, added some file as the second link suggest, but it didn't work.
- I found a file in
70-fonts-noto-cjk.conf, but I'm not sure what to do with it.
TL;DR: If I have a second, non-Latin language installed on LM 19 Cinnamon which I use parallel to the system default, where do I configure its default font?
Bonus question: a change to the default Chinese font might be a thing to do in a further release, should I suggest it?
