Call for testing: chromium 61.0.3163.100


#3

Solus 3 - installation went fine.

Took a good minute to load the first time, couldn’t find via the menu under Budgie so ran /snap/bin/chromium

Font’s look incorrect, not sure how to get any more detail for you, from running on the CLI I get these messages, not sure if helpful at all

Gtk-Message: Failed to load module "canberra-gtk-module"
Gtk-Message: Failed to load module “canberra-gtk-module”
[8951:9034:0928/153218.652016:ERROR:udev_watcher.cc(60)] Failed to begin udev enumeration.

Not sure how well this screenshot will come out.

Hope this helps

What is the default font family for your user interface? i.e. the output of:

gsettings get org.gnome.desktop.interface font-name


#5

Hey @oSoMoN

andy@asuras ~/Projects $ gsettings get org.gnome.desktop.interface font-name
’Clear Sans 10’

Let me know if you need anything else.


#6

Just to add that this is a vanilla install of Solus 3, not changed any settings apart from installing a few applications.


#7

The “Clear Sans” font doesn’t appear to be packaged in Ubuntu, so it can’t easily be added to the snap’s stage packages. This problem will go away once snapd allows access to the host’s fonts, see the work James has done here.

If you can point me to the solus package for that fonts, I might be able to add it to the snap manually.


#8

Found the font package from solus, and added to the snap here.
A build will kick off automatically shortly, and I will update the candidate channel once built.


#9

And done. Can you refresh your snap from the candidate channel and let me know if the font issue is still there?

snap refresh chromium --candidate


#10

Just a quick polish note here, the icon shown in GNOME Shell on Ubuntu 17.10 is generic, not the Chromium icon. :slight_smile:


#11

It doesn’t work on 17.10, Wayland session.


#12

Thanks for the work! Apologies for the delay, this is my work machine

andy@asuras ~/Projects $ sudo snap refresh chromium --candidate
snap “chromium” has no updates available


#13

Icon in the dock, or in the activities view (or both)? Can you share a screenshot?


#14

Can you share details about your hardware (graphics card) and software:

snap info core chromium


#15

The snap was probably refreshed automatically. Can you share the output of:

snap info chromium

And is the problem with the font fixed?


#16

It was updated, sorry busy at work and didn’t even try checking loading the app, my apologies.

The title fonts look fine, but rendering on the page is still off

None of this is a road stopper for me, just thought it’s things you may want to address. Let me know if you need more info.


#17

Thanks for the feedback. The font rendering problem on web content is most likely another missing font package, I’ll see if I can figure out which.


#18

@diplo can you please share the output of:

gsettings get org.gnome.desktop.interface document-font-name


#19

I like the alerts on Discourse :slightly_smiling_face:

andy@asuras ~ $ gsettings get org.gnome.desktop.interface document-font-name
’Sans 11’

I was googling to try and work that out myself


#20

What is the output of:

fc-match Sans


#21

andy@asuras ~ $ fc-match Sans
ClearSans-Regular.ttf: “Clear Sans” “Regular”

I’m only here for another 25mins today, don’t have access to the machine till Monday I’m afraid, but will check here over the weekend, just don’t have the machine to test on.


#22

Thanks. If that was the setting being used to determine the font for web content rendering, it should be found as it is in the snap. I’ll have to keep digging. Can you share a screenshot of that page as rendered by the chromium snap: chrome://settings/fonts ?
