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)

This still makes my fonts look much better in IntelliJ IDEA. That's after removing everything from all Infinality repos, installing fonts-meta-base (AUR) and fonts-meta-extended-lt (AUR), symlinking the 30-infinality-aliases.conf from fonts-meta-extended-lt, and applying the font configuration tweaks from the wiki ( The Java-specific font tweaks in the wiki didn't seem to do much.

This patched JRE fucks up my Intellij IDEA fonts now, so I'm going to disown it. I'm not sure why that is, but it all started with Infinality + harfbuzz. You can learn about it here:

It seems jdk-jdk8u102-b14.tar.gz on is corrupted, getting sha256 mismatch & errors during unpacking the archive.

Det, because the original maintainer didn't rename it for some reason (probably forgot to) and now it's too late. If I try to upload PKGBUILD with different package base name AUR won't accept it because sub packages (jre8-openjdk-infinality, jdk8-openjdk-infinality, jre8-openjdk-headless-infinality) already exist. Renaming process without loosing votes in this case seems a bit complicated and it's probably not worth wasting time on this since it doesn't affect anything much. It only might be a problem if a trusted user decides to move it to official repository, in which case he can just rename it himself.

Yea, but why?

gim commented on 2016-10-19 06:23

Det, yes, it's the same.

Det commented on 2016-10-18 19:54

The package base is duplicate with the official one?:

@gim, it works fine! Thanks.
