I have installed Linux Mint 18.3 Cinnamon on my laptop Asus N550LF a few days ago. Thanks to the help of this forum, I managed to find a good compromise for everything I needed. In particular, I followed this guide:
Improve Video performance for Intel Graphics
https://sites.google.com/site/easylinux ... l-graphics
and I removed the package
Code: Select all
if you click on the link, you can actually see that this example focuses on three different fonts, and only one out of three (the last row) is rendered quite well. I am using the default pdf reader. As soon as I zoom in, rendering suddenly improves, but I need to increase hugely the zoom percentage (far way greater than 100%) to obtain a good result. With zoom lower than 100%, the document is almost unreadable.
I read about Infinality font rendering:

I am always concerned about adding PPAs to Ubuntu-based systems. Do you think it's a stable solution? is it worth to have a try? Any other suggestion?
PS. My laptop also features a dedicated nVidia GPU, but I am actually focusing on Intel optimization.
