Subject: [gentoo-user] freetype-2.3.3 messed up my desktop

1 Hi All,
3 Just updated my laptop and noticed that freetype-2.3.3 was installed.
4 Restarted xorg and the font size and legibility of X apps changed for the
5 worse. The fonts are now considerably smaller, anti-aliasing makes them look
6 really blurred, fixed-width font in Kmail is shown grey(!), etc.
8 Am I the only one that had this unwelcome (in my case) change? I tried
9 removing anti-aliasing for fonts 06-12ps, but then they looked rather jagged
10 and extremely wiry (too thin). I'd rather didn't change everything to bold,
11 but fear that in five minutes I am going to get a migraine due to eye
12 strain! :)
14 Is this the way it is supposed to look?
16 PS. In reality it looks more blurred that the attached picture, probably
17 because of the low quality of the monitor.
