Atom fonts are messed up!


Today I opened atom and I saw fonts are messed up!

But the wired point is when I switch to the settings tab fonts are well but when I switch to another tab fonts are messed up!
You can see the difference here:point_down:

I read this topic on github but my problem didn’t solve

Strange Font when installing it on Deepin 15.7

What happens when you open Settings?


suddenly the tree view fonts look well like the right image
but when I close it the font looks like this:


You can see what’s happening in the HTML of Atom by opening the developer tools (View -> Developer -> Toggle developer tools) and navigating to the representation of the tree view (ctrl-f for addWindow would find it easily enough). Then you can open the Settings view and see if that causes any change in the font properties for the text.


I checked but nothing changes!


What OS are you on? What version of Atom are you running?


OS: Ubuntu 18.04 (Since when I upgraded to 18.04 this happened )
Atom: 1.24.1 x64


Whenever there’s trouble with fonts on Linux, it’s likely an issue with FreeType


Thanks a lot! I should upgrade my libfreetype from version 2.8.1 to 2.9
Here is the link which helped me to upgrade:
