I managed to stay away from the snap version of Chromium as it’s security popups are annoying for web development. But the upgrade to Ubuntu 19.10 forced snap on me…
So now the file picker is unusable as fonts seems to not load properly:
I found this fix and though it was sufficient:
sudo rm /var/cache/fontconfig/* rm ~/.cache/fontconfig/* sudo fc-cache -r -v rm -rf ~/snap/chromium/common/.cache/fontconfig/
and then restart chromium.
It worked the first time, but once I reboot the problem is back.
I’m looking for a definitive solution.
Thanks in advance,
edit : one command from the fix was missing and the order was wrong. Fixed
