Opera 25 issue with fonts

  • I'm on Arch linux and opera 25.0.1583.1. Since the latest updated, my fonts are not being, I guess, rendered properly is the right term. They are pixelated and not scaled properly. This is on all websites that don't define their own fonts and the settings tab. Manually setting a different font or size makes no difference.

    A really annoying issue that makes me use another browser since it is a pain to read anything.

  • This is a known issue on Linux. The reason not everyone sees it (and it disproportionally affects Arch users) is because it only breaks with certain font settings.

    You can try playing with your anti-alias settings to work around this while you're waiting for the fix: changing the hinting strength to a different setting from the one you're using now should give you your anti-aliasing back (check KDE's or Gnome's advanced font settings to change this).
