KDE Fonts – How to Fix Choppy Fonts After Using KDE System Settings?


I used KDE System Settings to configure my KDE appearance settings (I wanted to make KolourPaint look native), even though I use GNOME. I changed some font settings through it, and now all of my fonts are really choppy. Is there any way to revert these changes?

Best Answer

All font settings are stored in a hidden file in your home folder, called .fonts.conf.

If you remove it (in your home folder, press Ctrl + H, and delete .fonts.conf), and generate a new one, by running, in a terminal instance (Applications > Accessories > Terminal): sudo dpkg-reconfigure fontconfig

You then should get the usual Linux crystal clear fonts (you actually may need to log out and log back in, but that's it)
