Question Fonts look poor in Chromium and QuiteRSS.


Hi.

I'm running Debian 9 Stable with MATE.

I inadvertently deleted some home directory config files and now my fonts look odd in Chromium and QuiteRSS. VLC also looks worse. Is there a QT connection? See image attached.

How can I remedy this? I re-added the .fonts.conf file with the contents below:

Code:
<?xml version='1.0'?>
<!DOCTYPE fontconfig SYSTEM 'fonts.dtd'>
<fontconfig>
 <match target="font">
  <edit mode="assign" name="rgba">
   <const>rgb</const>
  </edit>
 </match>
 <match target="font">
  <edit mode="assign" name="hinting">
   <bool>true</bool>
  </edit>
 </match>
 <match target="font">
  <edit mode="assign" name="hintstyle">
   <const>hintslight</const>
  </edit>
 </match>
 <match target="font">
  <edit mode="assign" name="antialias">
   <bool>true</bool>
  </edit>
 </match>
  <match target="font">
    <edit mode="assign" name="lcdfilter">
      <const>lcddefault</const>
    </edit>
  </match>
</fontconfig>
