Bug#306627: kde: Fond antialiasing broken in KDE

Package: kde-core
Version: 5:44
Severity: normal
File: kde

When I upgraded to this version of KDE several days ago, a user reoprted
that font antialiasing had been disabled.  I use windowmaker on the same
machines, and there's nothing wrong with the fonts in my sessions, only
in KDE.  I went into the "Control Center" and turned on antialiasing
with RGB subpixel rendering.  This was enabled, however all fonts now
had very visible red and blue fringes that make them unreadable.  The
systemwide default is for RGB-aa, and I can verify with xmag that this
works properly and looks great in my windowmaker sessions.  In KDE most
letters have much larger red/blue fringes (though not wider than 1
pixel) and it's very visible and ugly.  Changing the hinting has no
apparent effect.  Worse, disabling subpixel rendering doesn't work at
all - it's either ugly red-and-blue fonts or ugly un-aa fonts.
Everything is very hard to read either way.
