This question already has an answer here:
I've made some strange experiences ever since I upgraded from Ubuntu 16.04 to 18.04: Small vertical red lines are occuring next to (random) letters in almost every word that is displayed in any program. This is kind of annoying, since it renders a text hard to read. Changing of fonts does not help. Does anyone know what might cause this problem and could give me a hint regarding a possible solution?
I would highly appreciate that.
