Hi, I upgrade the other day, and ever since then, my fonts in KDE look awful. They are gray (grey) and wispy... barely legible in the terminal and in the GUI. It seems to affect all my QT apps.

I have these QT packages installed:
[ebuild   R    ] dev-qt/qtchooser-0_p20150102
[ebuild   R    ] app-eselect/eselect-qtgraphicssystem-1.1.1
[ebuild   R    ] x11-themes/gtk-engines-qtpixmap-0.28-r2
[ebuild   R    ] dev-qt/qtcore-4.8.6-r2
[ebuild   R    ] dev-qt/qtdbus-4.8.6-r1
[ebuild   R    ] dev-qt/qtscript-4.8.6-r2
[ebuild   R    ] dev-qt/qtsql-4.8.6-r1
[ebuild   R    ] dev-qt/qttest-4.8.6-r1
[ebuild   R    ] dev-qt/qtxmlpatterns-4.8.6-r1
[ebuild   R    ] dev-qt/qttranslations-4.8.6-r1
[ebuild   R    ] dev-qt/qtgui-4.8.6-r4
[ebuild   R    ] dev-qt/qt3support-4.8.6-r1
[ebuild   R    ] dev-qt/qtsvg-4.8.6-r1
[ebuild   R    ] dev-qt/qtwebkit-4.8.6-r1
[ebuild   R    ] dev-qt/qtopengl-4.8.6-r1
[ebuild   R    ] dev-libs/libdbusmenu-qt-0.9.2
[ebuild   R    ] sys-auth/polkit-qt-0.112.0-r1
[ebuild   R    ] dev-qt/designer-4.8.6-r1
[ebuild   R    ] dev-qt/qtdeclarative-4.8.6-r1
[ebuild   R    ] media-libs/qt-gstreamer-1.2.0
[ebuild   R    ] media-video/qt-recordmydesktop-0.3.8-r2
[ebuild   R    ] kde-apps/kqtquickcharts-4.14.3

I tried upping my fontconfig to fontconfig-2.11.93, but that didn't help.

Anyone else having this issue? Any suggestions?

To look without without looking within is like looking without without looking at all.

I did fix this, though I'm not sure which tactic fixed it. I did an eselect fontconfig set 25, and re-installed my fontconfig package... now things are back to normal. I really think it was the eselect that got it, since changing my fontconfig package alone didn't seem to help.
