I did a world update yesterday and now my fonts are almost unreadable. It looks like an issue with infinality as apps are reporting problems trying to load the config file as shown below:

> palemoon-bin
Fontconfig error: failed reading config file
Fontconfig error: Cannot load config file "infinality/conf.d"

The sym-link appears valid as shown below:

> ls -l /etc/fonts/infinality/conf.d
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 29 Dec 19 08:37 /etc/fonts/infinality/conf.d -> styles.conf.avail/ultimate-ms

Any suggestions on how to fix this?

Thanks,
Lance

I found a (temp) solution at:

https://www.mail-archive.com/search?l=gentoo-user@lists.gentoo.org&q=subject:%22[gentoo-user]%22&o=newest&f=1

The symlink apparently can't have a relative path so I recreated it with:

> ln -s /etc/fonts/infinality/styles.conf.avail/ultimate-ms /etc/fonts/infinality/conf.d

And now my fonts are much better and more readable (although they don't seem as clear as before the upgrade)

Thank you.

It gave me an idea.

I modified the /usr/share/eselect/modules/infinality.eselect file and changed this line:

Code:
ln -s "styles.conf.avail/${target}" "${EROOT}/etc/fonts/infinality/conf.d"


with this:

Code:
ln -s "${EROOT}/etc/fonts/infinality/styles.conf.avail/${target}" "${EROOT}/etc/fonts/infinality/conf.d"


and it works flawlessly without creating symlinks manually.

UPDATE: I created the app-eselect/eselect-infinality package which fixes this issue. Add my overlay "jorgicio" (as usual) and you're ready.
