    ...aaaand DejaVu Sans still is the default browser font... Why does it always l.ove (they catch me if I say it without the dot) to be the default in the Linux land?

    May I rant about it? Here it goes...



    (this might be a minor problem for the Librem 5 considering vertical space)

      Harassment-free font of personal preference

      If you can change fonts, there is nothing to be ranted about so much

          Feel free to file a proposal or a bug report changing the default font on a browser.

            Firefox lets you scroll through and choose from a list of every installed font.

            Hardly makes a difference, though, because pages set their own font choices. You can tell Firefox to *not* do this but then, most likely, page display will go wonky.

              so for they should change the default because of librem 5??? You want to install Fedora Workstation on a smartphone?? I guess the librem devs still have quite some time to change the defaults in their Distro on their own.

                Then you just have to figure out how to enable any kind of font anti-aliasing that comes preconfigured in any other distribution to make any font looking tolerable in Fedora. I still haven't figured out how to make fonts look as good in Fedora as they look in any Ubuntu derivative or even Arch derivatives like Manjaro or Antergos.

                  TL;DR: Use "slight" hinting with the RGB subpixel hinting on LCDs.

                    I am testing both KDE and Gnome. KDE is tending to be my favourite, as it is just GREAT. Gnome, I believe, is at version 3.32, and that version has some teething problems. Solve that one problem on which everything else depends, and it's roaring to go.
                    I've been a Gnome user since Fedora core. That is many many years ago. Now I have to great choices and can't decide between. Is it to be KDE or Gnome?
