I'm using Debian 9 with KDE and I need normal Consolas fonts in my system. First after installation I hadn't any Consolas font installed so I downloaded it, opened and just clicked install. And what I noticed is that regular and bold variation of font looks almost the same. So I installed font-manager, downloaded all 4 variations fro, the Microsoft site and installed them via font-manager, after that Consolas became looks brilliant but after restarting machine it gone back to ugly-looking and now I can't make it looks good again. Bold looks even better. What can I do?

  • I can't answer your question specifically, but why do you need Consolas? – Sparhawk Sep 29 '17 at 7:20

    In the font section of the system settings, did you choose anti-aliasing independent from the size? – Philippos Sep 29 '17 at 7:36
  • @Philippos I need to use Consolas in apps like Sublime etc, that setting allows me to adjust anti-aliasing of fonts used for OS elements... – Daria Sep 29 '17 at 7:39
  • @Daria In this case I don't understand how KDE is involved. Sublime uses X11 directly, right? – Philippos Sep 29 '17 at 7:44
  • @Philippos I don't complain on KDE, just added for information. And problem is not only in Sublime, but in all apps that uses it. As you see on a screenshots, the font looks bad in font-manager too – Daria Sep 29 '17 at 8:05
