A few days my font became blurry. I haven't really done anything that I know of. I have tried removing (and changing) all my settings from `~/.config/fonts/` and `/etc/fonts`. I'm not sure what to include here, just ask me whatever you want me to show you. :)

Left: My regular user (Blurry)
Right: Root (Sharp)

I also tried creating a new user and the font was blurry there as well, even when I run it via root? It only works for root if I run it as root via my regular user. It's super confusing..

Any help are highly appreciated!

Check /root/.config/fontconfig/fonts.conf also

That's interesting. It could be an environment variable.

Please log in as root directly and run
Code:
export > a

Then log in as root via your regular user and run
Code:
export > b

Please post the result of
Code:
diff a b

Make sure to remove any personal data (keys, etc.) in the output before you post it.

BTW: I think the left side looks much better than the right side. But that's a matter of taste...

You're a genius! I had removed this little line from my zsh configuration a few days ago when I was playing around with it:

Code:
export FREETYPE_PROPERTIES="truetype:interpreter-version=35"


Adding it back solved the issue. Thank you! :D

Of all the font rendering problems I've seen over the years… that's a completely new one. Good catch.
