I just replaced Mint with Manjaro Cinnamon on a Dell Latitude E6510. I am very happy with the change that gives me access to cutting edge packages compared to Mint.
The major grief I have against Manjaro Cinnamon vs Mint is the font rendering that is sub-par. Fonts have jagged edges (especially visible on diagonals on ‘W’ and ‘M’) and there is a moiré effect (vertical rainbow-colored streaks) very visible on dark backgrounds. It is not atrocious but after having used Mint for a while it definitely hurts the eye.
Here is a screenshot I took from the Manjaro cinnamon ISO.
Changing the hinting option does not seem to have any noticeable effect.
Are others also seeing this? Is there a setting somewhere that can be adjusted?
On my desktop computer I have Manjaro KDE running and I installed Infinality to improve fonts without problem. I tried installing Infinality on Manjaro Cinnamon but I am unable to make it work. I see not effect no matter what setting I try as if Cinnamon would overwrite Infinality settings.
Does anybody have luck with getting Infinality to work with Cinnamon?
