For me the symptoms were first observed with PC-BSD 11.0-CURRENT. The first of my 2016 screenshots (below) is similar to the 2012 shot in Debian-related Fonts of some applications get confused so, reading the two questions alongside each other:

  • it seems that the problem/symptoms may affect multiple desktop environments in both Linux and FreeBSD.

From my screenshots:

  • please, can anyone guess what's wrong?

Hint: to clearly view the symptoms, you may find it necessary to view each shot full-size.

In my case it's certain that symptoms are present for multiple users and multiple desktop environments – and most (maybe all) packages have been reinstalled. So:

  • I guess that the problem is with a configuration file that is shared (not in any home directory).

I tested a new user account, the problem persisted.

Screenshots

Document Viewer (Evince)

Poorly rendered fonts in the toolbar and sidebar of the application:

Xterm

Poorly rendered font within the terminal window:

Luxi Sans medium and Terminal in xfontsel

The poorly rendered font sample in the lowest part of the application window (although from commentary below, and from glancing at xfontsel on a different computer, it may be that the pixellation is to be expected in this application):

Xfburn

Comparisons

The shot of Xfburn may be most telling; the degraded appearance is not limited to fonts. Compare what's above with a 2010 shot (from Xfburn – A tool the size of the task | Written and Read):

When I choose a PC-BSD 10.2-RELEASE boot environment on the affected machine, there's no problem. In this shot from 10.2, (GNOME) System Monitor appears fine:

GNOME System Monitor on PC-BSD 10.2-RELEASE

Additional notes

When I logged in to MATE, the fonts in its menu bar were pixellated.

Without running X, I ran the following command to force reinstallation (or upgrade) of all packages –

pkg upgrade -f

– then restarted the operating system. That pkg routine did not work around the problem.

As far as I can tell, the poor font rendering is no better when VESA mode applies.

Shortlist of some affected applications

  • Files (nautilus) 3.18.5
  • Gnote 3.18.1
  • HexChat 2.10.2
  • Pidgin 2.10.12 (libpurple 2.10.12)
  • System Monitor (gnome-system-monitor) 3.16.0
  • Web (epiphany) 3.16.3
  • Xfburn 0.5.4
  • XTerm 322

Shortlist of some non-affected applications

At a glance:

  • Firefox 44.0.2
  • Konsole 2.14.2
  • Konversation 1.5.1
  • KSnapshot 0.8.2
  • System Log (KSystemLog) 0.4
  • Thunderbird 38.6.0

– from a separate installation of PC-BSD 11.0-CURRENTJAN2016 it seems, that's the norm. From discussion in irc://chat.freenode.net/#pcbsd it's assumed that their nonexistence implies default values.

Selected comments from beyond Stack Exchange

From a developer:

Sorry Graham, I don't really have an idea of what could be causing this. Looks like gtk is going nuts on your system, or some lower-level X issues.

Good luck …


Background

As far as I recall, the problem in my case arose from intentionally aggressive testing of PC-BSD 11.0-CURRENTFEB2016 with portmaster(8). During a run of portmaster, probably –

sudo portmaster -GaD

– I launched a type of application that might cause the hardware (Ergo Vista 621 notebook with Intel GM45 graphics) to blackout with anything more recent than 11.0-CURRENTNOV2015. Sure enough, a blackout occurred with no response to Control-Alt-F2 and so I pressed the power button to shut down the system as gracefully as possible in the midst of works by portmaster.

I have ZFS boot environments for both 11.0-CURRENTNOV2015 and 11.0-CURRENTFEB2016. Since the problem occurred whilst testing the latter, the symptom is present in both environments.

    A problem in some antialiasing tool, like infinality? Also you "guess" the problem is not in users' config files: did you try with a fresh user account? The rendering I get in xfontsel is not better than yours: probably not abnormal. So, can you confirm this is a GTK-only issue, by running many Qt apps and many GTK apps? – L. Levrel Feb 23 '16 at 12:55

    infinality is not in FreshPorts, I guess that's for Linux only. I don't know how to tell the difference between GTK and Qt applications, but I edited the question to include shortlists of affected and non-affected applications. Edited also to show that the problem does affect a fresh user account. – Graham Perrin Feb 25 '16 at 16:52

    Mostly, KDE stuff is Qt-based and Gnome&Xfce stuff is GTK-based. So it looks like a GTK problem, except that XTerm is affected. Are you sure it is as badly affected as the other (GTK) apps? Or just like xfontsel? You could make xfontsel display your XTerm font and compare. – L. Levrel Feb 25 '16 at 18:42

Without identifying the troublesome package

Laziness – without the desired learning.

Instead of performing a change of branch from 10.2-RELEASE to 11.0-CURRENT, I removed from 11.0-CURRENTNOV2015 most of the packages that were not of immediate interest to me.

Now XTerm and various other applications appear good. An example:

screen shot of XTerm looking good

xfontsel

probably not abnormal

Yes. Now I see that rendering in xfontsel is relatively poor.

Identification of the package that most likely caused the problem

From the details below, someone might recognise a likely culprit.

If an additional answer helps me to identify the offending package, I'll happily:

  • accept; and then (after I regain sufficient reputation)
  • award a bounty.

Details of removals

Using pkg(7)

Round one

Focused on removal of some desktop environments.

icewm was remarkable:

  • preparation for removal suggested that two packages were to be removed
  • deinstallation counted nothing.

So I used pkg to (re)install icewm –

  • installation counted nothing

– then remove it:

  • deinstallation counted one package.

Round two (outline)

I used pkg to set to non-automatic the packages that I wished to keep.

Then the autoremove command of pkg to –

Delete packages which were automatically installed as dependencies and are not required any more.

– then removal of some other stuff (probably relating to MATE), then another autoremove routine.

Finally I attended to a handful of packages that I wanted to reinstall (evince, gnome-characters, gnome-screenshot, gnome-system-monitor, nautilus, xfontsel).
