Hi,

some fonts are ugly, or not rendered correctly.

Look at these screenshots:

[EDIT]

solved it by enabling 70-no-bitmaps.conf
Code:
eselect fontconfig enable 70-no-bitmaps.conf


[/EDIT]


it seems only one font(family?) is rendered ugly.

Here is my emerge --info:

+1 from me as well. Was expecting to have to slog through something really gross to fix this.

Thanks!
