I want to emulate Windows 7 fonts on my Ubuntu 13.10 system. I installed infinality and tried a couple of themes via infctl.sh (Win7 and OSX2 ones). Alas, none of them was fully suitable: OSX2 theme needs to be darker and Win7 theme needs to be thicker.

I tried to modify the filter matrix via infinality-settings.sh. It writes the proper (modified) values to the environment variables, but nothing happens to my rendered fonts. I restarted my machine several times, but it does not help.

Can anyone tell me the proper way to modify my filter settings?

P.S. My antialiasing settings are here.

  • It's automatically resized, take its full version: i.stack.imgur.com/3HjS0.png – Felix Mar 18 '14 at 21:40
  • I've modified the image above so that you can now click on it to get a full sized version in a separate tab. – slm Mar 19 '14 at 1:33
  • Heh, here was the answer: the freetype was not patched. stackoverflow.com/a/22540156/2726900 – Felix Mar 20 '14 at 18:25
