Summary0002325: Text overlap each other
DescriptionI’ve just installed the latest version of NetSurf on Ubuntu 15.04, using the instructions online (ns-pull-install, etc). Almost all text is rendered strangely – condensing words so they overlap. I’ve attached a screenshot. Pages are unreadable. I’ve noticed it’s especially bad on text input fields (like this one); the cursor lags behind the actual text being entered.
TagsNo tags attached.
