Hello all! Yesterday I upgraded from an AMD video card to a GTX 980ti, and am seeing some weird glitches in KDE's fonts now. Screenshot for reference: http://postimg.org/image/8r37f4m7n/

What do you think could be going on? I installed the nvidia drivers according the Gentoo wiki (https://wiki.gentoo.org/wiki/NVidia/nvidia-drivers), and made sure to change all relevant config files (make.conf, updated xorg.conf with nvidia-xconfig). Any ideas?

Looks like an issue with whatever effect is applied to the text of the icons, not with the fonts themselves. You could try switching to another plasma theme, or try changing rendering backend in Systemsettings -> Display and Monitor -> Compositor
Also make sure both egl and gles2 useflags are disabled for qt packages and plasma/kwin (aka. put -egl -gles2 for the related packages in /etc/portage/package.use).
Be aware that if you chose to disable them globally, you'll need to enable egl for media-libs/mesa (kwayland dependency).

Hey, thanks for the suggestions, but they are not working :-(.

I tried both the OpenGL 2.0 and 3.1 backends, and had the same issue happen.

I tried different themes in Plasma, and the issue persisted in all of them. All qt and plasma/kwin packages were already made with -egl and -gles2 (I added -egl and -gles2 globally, and the only thing that needed to be re-emerged was net-libs/webkit-gtk with -egl*).

The issue is also happening with the fonts/text in the Application Launcher. I am also getting weird "artifacting" (not sure if this is the right way to describe it) in Konsole. Little dots appear in it that are the same color as the text in the Konsole.
