indiansummer: ugly fonts in iceweasel
« on: 2015/03/12, 20:49:18 »

on the #siduction irc support channel our user terroreek has reported a broken link on IndianSummer:
/etc/fonts/conf.d/70-no-bitmaps.conf -> ../conf.avail/70-no-bitmaps.conf
As a result you may encounter ugly fonts in iceweasel on some websites like github.com or stackoverflow.com (webkit browsers are not affected). Our "most valuable member of the day" der_bud found a solution to repair the link and refresh the font cache with theese commands:
Code: [Select]
dpkg-reconfigure fontconfig-config ; dpkg-reconfigure fontconfigAs a result the link should look like this:
/etc/fonts/conf.d/70-no-bitmaps.conf -> /usr/share/fontconfig/conf.avail/70-no-bitmaps.conf

and hopefully your eyes won't get hurt anymore when reading the answers on stackoverflow ;-)
