terminal window - text character display issue (SOLVED)


Recommended Posts

Strange one,

 

Can anybody help me uncover why my terminal window is not displaying text properly.

 

The picture shows how text displays whenever I open a terminal window, this also remains after a reboot.

 

As you can see the right hand side of the letters is simply not showing

Thanks Squid, your correct. Using an alternate browser the text displays correctly.

 

I was using Firefox when i noticed the problem, but Edge (Chrome based) does not have the same issue and neither does Chrome.

 

 

Interesting as its not something I remember from before I upgraded from 6.8.3 to 6.9.1 - makes me wonder if I'm just getting old 🤔

This isn't solved as the topic suggests.  Using another browser is a work-around, not a solution / fix.  And unfortunately some people such as myself, using Firefox or Chrome, even on different workstations / laptops it is still is displaying an unreadable font.  I have multiple unraidOS systems and each of them was fine before 6.9.x.  So the new version is where the issue resides.

 

  • Ubuntu 20.04 - Google Chrome or Firefox have issue
  • LInux Mint - Google Chrome or Firefox have issue
  • WIndows 10 - Google Chrome has issue | Firefox works fine
  • Mac OS - Firefox works Fine | Google Chrome viewable, but can still notice imperfect font when changing zoom

Bump,

This is still an issue for Chrome on a Windows machine.   This is the most widely used Web Browser out, really need to resolve this, thanks!

Confirmed still broken with Chrome 95.0.4638

Just FYI as of today I got third time lucky with Safari after both Firefox and Chrome were illegable in the terminal - Safari crystal clear, which is both great (to get stuff done) and annoying as I never use Safari! Anyway, maybe helps someone else do the "browser dance" more efficiently!

In Windows 10, got to   'Settings'   and   'Ease of Access'   and    'Display'    to look at the    'Make Text Bigger'   and      'Make Everything Bigger'  settings.    These settings tend to work fine for many applications but, in some cases, they can really mess things up.

Weird. I got some new monitors... the problem is gone.  I'm guessing it more windows display setting issue than the actual monitors but still very weird.  Anyways, looking forward to the 6.10 and hope the problem doesn't come back.

As an FYI - Old Monitors were MSI MPG27CQ and the new ones are Samsung Odyssey G7s

I looked at both monitors and they were both 2560X1440 pixels.  Strange....   Wonder if it is a mis-communication problem between the monitor and the Graphics driver in Windows?  (Wild thought for anyone else who stumbles on this thread with the problem.  Check with the monitor manufacturer and see if they have a new configuration file for Windows 10 for that monitor.)
