Subject: [gentoo-user] CURA font renderer

Hi,

Since cura/curaengine (portage) does not compile on my system and is
relatively old I downloaded cura for Linux from www.ultimaker.com.

This runs on my system without the installation of addtional
applications/libraries.

Unfortunately the font rendering screwed up and makes menu entries,
text boxes etc. hard to read.

This is an issue with cure, since the cura blog lists postings of 
cura users, which have these kinds of problems on MacOSX (and nvida
cards).

I also run a nvidia card.

In the cura code the devs have already fixed that by switching the
font renderer (qs vs. native)...but this fix will be published
in cura 3.1 (current version is 3.04).

Something echoed in my brain to have similiar problems which an
application on Linux a long time ago and I fixed that by doing
"something" with the font renderer/font cache or such.

Any idea how to fix this font issue or trying to are very appreciated!
Cheers
Meino
