[Bug 2017573] Re: Font hinting broken on 23.04


Ok. The thought I had was that the Kubuntu fonts dialog may not reflect
the actual rendering 100% correctly. I'm not claiming that's the case,
but I feel there is such a risk.

Anyway, I'm going to seek help to find out whether the changed behavior
of the Ubuntu font is by design, or if it is a bug. As regards other
fonts which more or less seem to ignore the fonts hinting value, I don't
know right now. As regards Liberation Sans I couldn't confirm a

Myself normally uses the defaults with respect to hinting and
antialiasing, and that works ok for me. When accomplishing some tests
with antialiasing disabled, I couldn't help wondering what the point is

  Font hinting broken on 23.04

Status in fonts-ubuntu package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  Just upgraded my laptops to Kubuntu 23.04 Lunar Lobster and hinting
  for all non-commercial fonts seems broken. I used to have decent if
  not perfect hinting on Ubuntu and Ubuntu Mono font, but now the only
  fonts that still hint correctly are Microsoft's Verdana and Tahoma
  etc. Not sure whether the devide is exactly along this line, but it
  stands out.

  Tried regenerating font cache (fc-cache -rv) but that didn't help.
