Description Alex Efros 2008-10-13 02:12:46 UTC
Fonts used by kpdf doesn't looks really good.

I've found more details about this on and tried recommended solution. It works (I'll attach patch) - fonts now looks much better - but I'm not sure is it correct way to go. Also I wonder why kpdf ignore my configuration in ~/.fonts.conf and hardcode such things...

Reproducible: Always
