So I tried to upgrade from 5.6 to 5.7 last night which failed. Stupid linux once again could not for whatever reason get video output. Many many distros can not manage to do this on my laptop, which has a nvidia discrete gpu and a built in amd igpu. Why this is such an issue with linux I don't know.
I basically just did
pacman -Syu, and after that I shutdown and started up (hard reboot).
Then, I was suddenly greeted with an issue I thought was solved a year ago and have since not had again: Trying to install manjaro on a dual gpu laptop, can only get tty to work
So, since I didn't feel like battling linux, I just figured I'd retreat to 5.6 via the grub menu. That worked, then I uninstalled the 5.7 kernel and downgraded the
But now my fonts are slightly out of tune. My telegram font is slightly bolder, my terminal font is very thin (I feel like it's a completely different font face), as well as sublime text, which also has a similarly messed up font. Mousepad also has a different font.
Sure, it's all readable, but why is everything suddenly not able to load the correct fonts? I'm not sure where to even start with this obtuse issue and would appreciate comments and thoughts.
And no I have not installed custom fonts or really changed the font settings, even before the failed upgrade. I was rolling with system defaults.
