I installed a fresh Neon (dev unstable), removed the preinstalled files from /etc/fonts, copied your files to /etc/fonts and applied this patch.
Still cannot reproduce your issue.

# Aug 12 2018

I still cannot reproduce your issue. Any idea what I could try?

• Current kcm / new kcm's advanced tab

# Aug 3 2018

With this latest version, the issue I mentioned earlier persists for me. I did briefly get sub-pixel rendering again to work by switching the hinting style to Full, but then after switching back to something else and then back to Full again, it no longer worked and I was back to no sub-pixel rendering again. Feels kinda buggy.

Either way, we first need to implement tabs with a decent look&feel in Kirigami (resolve bugs 394295 and 394296) .

• fix writing config temporarily (previews) with missing local config entries
progwolff added a comment to T7927: Fonts “easy mode”.

So we keep the separator line in the advanced mode and drop the tabs from D12849#263660 ?

progwolff added a comment to T7927: Fonts “easy mode”.

We already discussed in D12849 if we should split the current layout into two tabs.
I like the idea of a simple mode and using tabs here seems like a good idea.
But we might want to have three tabs (Simple, Fonts fine-tuning, Rendering fine-tuning).

# Jul 31 2018

could you give me all those files?

Works for me....

• fix previews

I am not sure about the case when neither global nor local configs exist for subpixel or hint.
On my system it seems like rgb subpixel rendering with slight hinting is used when no configs exist. But I cannot find any documentation on this.

• split changes to previewimageprovider.cpp to a separate commit

Big sorry for being away for so long. I had some things to do that took much more time than initally planned.
Many thanks to those who fixed the bugs I introduced or created workarounds...

Rebase on master. Partial rewrite.

progwolff planned changes to D12849: Improve layout of fonts kcm.

I'll resume testing once this works a bit better. I'd say let's not rush this, and get it right for 5.14.

Did not review the code, but I noticed some warnings in addition to those mentioned above:

share/kpackage/kcms/kcm_fonts/contents/ui/main.qml:230:25: QML Image: Invalid image provider: image://preview/0_0.png
…
share/kpackage/kcms/kcm_fonts/contents/ui/main.qml:273:17: QML SpinBox: Binding loop detected for property "value"

The first isn't critical and exists since the previews were introduced. I will try to fix this in a separate commit.
The second on doesn't show up for me...

We were always told by VDG that tabs are bad and a 5 km vertically scrolling list is better no matter what. So be consistent, please.

From what I could find there is no TabView in QtQuickControls2 or Kirigami.
This is how it's done in Kirigami Gallery:

@progwolff, what happened to the frame for the tabbed view?

Did it the wrong way. Is fixed now.

• Use radio buttons. Use spacing instead of Separator. Simplify max(...).
progwolff added a comment to D12849: Improve layout of fonts kcm.

BTW, what's the difference between Vendor Default and the regular Defaults button? Either we provide an option to reset to the default for every single option separately, or for none at all.

Here "Vendor Default" means that no value is written to the user's ~/.config/fontconfig/fonts.conf. There might be a system wide config file though that has different settings.

But the same argument holds basically for any system-wide default setting? The only difference here is that normally defaults are provided via KConfigXT, while here it comes from fontconfig. Could we simply read the vendor default value, display it in the UI and finally if the user's choice is different, write it to the user's config?

You mean like this?

We might want to take the opportunity to also center-align the titles, which it better-looking for these centered formlayout style UIs.

Section titles in form layouts are left-aligned. This would have to be changed in Kirigami. @mart, am I right?

Overall, imo, I really think we should instead fix clang upstream so that we can re-enable this feature as we got it through libclang. See also:

I'm very unsure about this. On one hand, this obviously looks better in your screenshots. On the other hand, what if we encounter comments that are formatted with some other syntax?

Do you have examples for comments in a different syntax? I only know javadoc, which is quite similar.
Maybe there is a way to add the proposed functionality to the clang backend instead. This way we could be sure that the comments we parse are always doxygen comments.

Still, that folder exists by default

Are you sure? It might be created by some weird startup script or something else. Also, a user can choose to change the location of the Desktop folder. Just wanting to make sure this change (which I'm totally in favor of, don't get me wrong) doesn't break or have unwanted side-effects.

Maybe we need to discuss at a different place if and how we can learn about the opinion of the majority of KDE/Plasma users, before we change things that are possibly only broken for few.
