@gim, thanks for the reply. I was wondering since the versions don't currently match. I suppose it doesn't matter too much, I was just being a bit nitpicky :P

klevinlaughs, yes, they're available in official repositories:

Are there src and doc packages that go with this?

FYI: Installing this via "pacaur -S jre8-openjdk-headless-infinality jre8-openjdk-infinality jdk8-openjdk-infinality" doesn't apply the patches for some reason (doesn't seem to run the "prepare" section). Installing each split package separately with pacaur works, and doing a normal "makepkg -s" works. I'm not sure if it's a pacaur problem or a problem with this PKGBUILD, so I'm just passing it along.

I've already tried to delete files and re-download them

I've tried your setup, but it won't work.

I found a solution is to install another jdk, "jdk8-openjdk-jetbrains",

Now my fonts in Pycharm looks good.

My /etc/fonts/local.conf is at . All of those settings are documented on the wiki at . From reading it, it appears the only settings I have in my config. that aren't default are "rgba" and "lcdfilter", but I effectively copied/pasted it from somewhere else.

To symlink the Infinality aliases, install the fonts-meta-extended-lt AUR package, which puts a file at "/etc/fonts/conf.avail/30-infinality-aliases.conf", and then symlink that file over to the "/etc/fonts/conf.d" directory using "ln -s /etc/fonts/conf.avail/30-infinality-aliases.conf /etc/fonts/conf.d/30-infinality-aliases.conf" (as root or via sudo).

Then, verify that IDEA is actually using OpenJDK in Help --> About. If not, that can be controlled by putting the path to the JRE you want in an "idea.jdk" file in the IDEA configuration, like "echo /usr/lib/jvm/default > ~/.IdeaIC2016.3/config/idea.jdk". For a while, they were bundling their own custom JRE. I'm using the official Arch package, and I don't need to do this, but I did with the EAP.

@Magotchi, I had the same problem @gim. And your screenshots look pretty.
Could you show me your /etc/fonts/local.conf and how to symlink 30-infinality-aliases.conf from the fonts-meta-extended-lt package.

Magotchi commented on 2017-02-22 15:57

gim: Sorry for not noticing the reply and responding sooner. I don't have the issue in your screenshot, and everything in IDEA (both CE and UE) works and looks great for me.

Here some examples of IDEA's behavior for me with different JDK/JRE versions:

With Infinality patches (this AUR package):

Without Infinality patches (the standard Arch jdk8-openjdk package):

With Oracle JDK 8 (jdk AUR package):

I originally had Infinality fully set up through the Infinality repositories, and when the Harfbuzz issue came up, I removed all packages from the Infinality repositories, replacing them with fonts-meta-base, fonts-meta-extended-lt, jdk8-openjdk-infinality, jre8-openjdk-infinality, and jre8-openjdk-headless-infinality, all from the AUR. I also added some settings (hinting, etc.) to /etc/fonts/local.conf, and symlinked 30-infinality-aliases.conf from the fonts-meta-extended-lt package. That's where my setup is at this point with those screenshots.

Magotchi, you don't experience any weird font issues with this package?

It seems to affect only subpixel rendering in Intellij IDEA (PyCharm works all right though)
