Due to COMPLETE LACK of Manjaro KDE font rendering, I cannot recommend Manjaro to anyone.
I can though recommend MXLinux (Xfce) and SolydK (KDE) for newbies and intermediate users. They both have good font rendering out of the box, but not as good as Manjaro COULD have, but DOESN'T. For unknown reasons Manjaro coders have not coded any font rendering methods to Manjaro KDE. There is a fix though, and it makes absolutely HUUUGE DIFFERENCE. HUGE. Doing the things below make your fonts look amazing. Seeing is believing. You will not know the difference unless you make the fixes below by yourself. You will never go back and will always complain about font rendering when you fix them with the tutorial below:
Infinality Remix Font Rendering Patches can be done on Manjaro, but its beyond the scope of a newbie or an intermediate user. The patches consist of 3 packages:
How to Fix Manjaro font rendering:
grep Xft---> must be:
If its not the case go to KDE font setting and set "Hinting style" to "Slight"
git clone the above packages and makepkg -sci for each one of them
Hint: import the GPG key if its missing
Remove ~/.Xresources to make changes global so xresources are not messing with the proper setup.
Go to settings.sh in /etc/x11/xinit/xinitrc.d/ and do the following setting:
*uncomment color filtering and set it to "40"
*uncomment gamma to use full spectrum
*uncomment known tweaks/settings for known fonts
I wish these complicated installations were done by Manjaro devs who use Manjaro KDE as their daily driver (its too difficult to them? I don't know), because those settings make HUUUGE DIFFERENCE. I mean HUGE. Without these patches Manjaro is useless.
