I'm trying to get sharp fonts on my hidpi screen of gnome Ubuntu 16.04. I can get results with "Sawasdee" font, but not with "Ubuntu Light" font which looks better to my taste.
Any one knows how to make gnome use light fonts in interface?
I.e. "Ubuntu light". If a light font is set, then for some reason its rendered with normal width in majority of applications.
Tweak tool screen shot:
Whats interesting here: in font select box the font is properly shown, with light glyphs (see "Ubuntu light"), while left column is rendered with regular width (see "interface").
Also I've noticed a difference between applications when "light" fonts are selected SegoeUI Light rendering in application menus:
Firefox and LibreOffice render their menus with proper glyphs while gnome-terminal, chrome and tweak tool with bolder glyphs.
This behavior is true for all the fonts with "light" version. The only light font which is properly rendered is Sawasdee. I dot know why.
Can someone tell how to make gnome-terminal render its fonts the way LibreOffice does? Or at least if there is a good light font exists apart from Sawasdee?
