Google Chrome bad font

Postby SlasherIT » 2012-07-15 14:10

Hello,

I am using Google Chrome, and its font looks really bad and messed up. Epiphany looks fine. My Debian Squeeze system is using the Ubuntu font, and everything, all applications use that font except Google Chrome, which again, looks really bad.

EDIT: Attachments aren't working :(

Thank you very much.

I think this issue with Chrome is sometimes solved by having a .fonts.conf file in your home directory.

The contents of my .fonts.conf is this:

Code: Select all
<?xml version="1.0"?>
<!DOCTYPE fontconfig SYSTEM "fonts.dtd">
<fontconfig>
 <match target="font" >
  <edit mode="assign" name="rgba" >
   <const>none</const>
  </edit>
 </match>
 <match target="font" >
  <edit mode="assign" name="hinting" >
   <bool>true</bool>
  </edit>
 </match>
 <match target="font" >
  <edit mode="assign" name="hintstyle" >
   <const>hintslight</const>
  </edit>
 </match>
 <match target="font" >
  <edit mode="assign" name="antialias" >
   <bool>true</bool>
  </edit>
 </match>
 <match target="font">
  <edit name="autohint" mode="assign">
   <bool>true</bool>
  </edit>
 </match>
</fontconfig>

Wow man, thanks a boatload. Fonts look 'much' better than before. 2 questions though. How exactly does this file work in making the font's in Google Chrome look good? And is there any way to make the font in Google Chrome look more... ubuntu'ish like my system font? Thank you very very very much :).
