A week ago I did an emerge world and one of my fonts looks different.

The font is Bitstream Vera Sans Roman. I use it for leafpad (a text editor) and for the terminal (xfce4 terminal, if that makes a difference?).

Here is a link to a picture showing before on the top and after on the bottom: click

This happened once before, a while ago, and I had fixed it by changing the font hinting settings in the appearance tab of the XFCE control panel. This time, however, that did not work.

So I would like to get the font to look like it used to, as in the top half of that picture, but I have not been able to figure out how to do this.

Thank you.

How the hell didn't I see that before?

It worked. Made that one file, put that one line in it. Saved. Rebooted. My nice text is nice again. :)

Thank you very much.
