Bug#248868: kde: Anti-aliasing is on but sub-pixel hinting is off (resolution)

Package: kde
Version: 5:47
Followup-For: Bug #248868


perhaps for people finding this bug report and agreeing with the fact
that fonts have been uglified with the recent kde updates.
The issue is not anti-aliasing per se but that sub-pixel hinting as been put
off per default.
You can put it back on with KDE -> Control Center -> Appearance
& Themes -> Fonts -> Configure... (next to "use anti-aliasing for fonts").

For sake of my own understanding: I remember vaguely that this sub-pixel
hinting was documented as part of the xserver-xfree86 configuration
(asking for LCD vs. CRT), but seems to have disappeared from
xserver-xorg. Is it the same thing? And wouldn't it make sense to have
sub-pixel hinting on per default, as I would expect most people to have
now an LCD screen!?

Thanks, Eric
