AppImage (Linux) bad fonts when scaled

Recommended Posts

Posted · AppImage (Linux) bad fonts when scaled

I had my screen scaling set to 1.25 (KDE Neon/Qt). The AppImage fonts looked terrible. I've tried many variations on setting QT_ environment variables. I even unpacked the AppImage and killed some things like fontconfig library. Putting the scaling to 1.0 is fine, but scaling up makes the fonts very blurry and hard to read.

It's not using any QT environment variables for the fonts. Instead, it's using what is defined in the theme files. You can find them in the app image inside resources/themes/

The default one is cura-light and you chan change the fonts used in the theme.json file.

Well I'm aware of the theme files. However, to change them you have to unpack the AppImage and either repack it or keep it unpacked, which would be OK. However, it looks like it is a scaling issue. I tried setting a theme JSON on 4.6 locally but didn't try it in the AppImage tree which now that I think about it makes sense. I will try that but I doubt it will fix my issue. But we'll see -- I'd like to be wrong.

 

Oh yeah -- I forgot. The AppImage mounted is RO and remounting it RW doesn't help. So I would then say the only way to do that would be to copy the AppImage tree somewhere else to do that. I'll still try it.
