I'm having a strange problem with a fresh installation of Ubuntu MATE 16.04.2
Note that all I did was open Appearance. I didn't change any settings. Just the act opening the Appearance window fixes the fonts. This problem occurs everytime I boot.
What's causing this and how can I fix it?
I am running Ubuntu MATE 64-bit 16.04.2 on an Asus G501VW Laptop, with official Nvidia drivers. I also installed the proprietary Intel microcode. It's also worth noting that the laptop comes with a 4k screen, but because of the impracticality of 4k on Linux and especially MATE, I decided to run everything on 1920x1080.
Also, I have a dual monitor setup. My second monitor is 1920x1200. I cropped out the second monitor from the screenshots. I'm not sure if it makes a difference but it's worth noting.
