Wine 1.8.6 Font issue on Mac

(NAHDI) #1

Hi, I use Homebrew to install wine to run .exe file on Mac. I just upgraded to wine-1.8.6 using 'brew upgrade wine". After the upgrade, the font becomes difficult to read because it is not smooth as in version 1.8.5.

I uploaded the screenshot below to show how different between version 1.8.6 and 1.8.5

It happens on both Sierra and El Capitan. Now I switched back to use version 1.8.5 using “brew switch wine 1.8.5”

Appreciate if anyone here know how to solve this issue.

Thank you.

I’d suggest that this is something worth discussing with the Wine project themselves; it seems unlikely it’s a Homebrew change causing this.

Hi Mike, thanks for your suggestion. I will reach Wine community to discuss this issue.

i got the same problem. Resetting the font cache helps on my mac:

sudo fc-cache -f -v
