Thread: Some of the text is boxed/squared and not readable

    Default Some of the text is boxed/squared and not readable

    Hi,

    I've been using tumbleweed for quite some time. But after an update some of the text is not readable. Like Visual Studio code's dialog shows boxed character, whole ibus menu and it's dialog shows boxed text. Though system dialog and menu are normal.

    I think that's some kind of font problem. I mainly see that when using "noscript" to block scripting in my browser.

    If I'm not mistaken the problem is with GTK applications on the KDE desktop.

    I have had this problem in the past because of my preferred font on KDE (Utopia). I was able to correct it by selecting a different font for GTK applications.

    With the last KDE update, however, it appears to me that the module in "systemsettings5" for selecting which font to use for GTK applications is gone. I suppose this is progress.

    For me the fix was to change my system font to something that works with GTK. I switched it to STIXGeneral but I'm sure there are others that will work.

    Thanks,
    I solved it by changing font from Courier to Noto Sans in
    Code:
    GNOME/GTK Application Style
    settings.

    I'm looking at GNOME/GTK Application Style. On my system it only gives me the option of changing among "styles" like Breeze, Adwaita, etc. There is no option just to change fonts that I can find. Although there used to be.

    What am I missing?
