I have font rendering issues with Ubuntu and 14 inches laptops. I have tried the following models: Lenovo T490s (whisky lake, certified by Ubuntu hardware) and Lenovo 13s (comet lake) both with Intel UHD Graphics.
I tried 16.04 LTS, 18.04 LTS, 20.04 LTS with downgrading and upgrading libfreetype and none of the solutions worked.
I also tried setting up sub pixel hitning, antialiasing, font scaling, changing resolutions (native + non-native) and none of this worked. The fonts are always blurry.
Below are two screenhots:
14 inch laptop with blurry fonts and 20.04 LTS (same results for 18.04 LTS and 16.04 LTS) https://i.postimg.cc/wqXfgD26/blur.png
15 inch laptop with perfect font rendering on 18.04 LTS (Skylake, with Nvidia GeForce GTX 960M) https://i.postimg.cc/v8GPBD25/non-blur.png
I am wondering if this issue is related to:
- 14 inches screens and Ubuntu hardware support
- 14 inches screens and Intel's integrated graphics
Any advices are more than welcomed.
