Operating Systems Linux Fedora Fedora 30 and Slackware 14.2, how to obtain the same rendering?
# 8  
I don't think it has anything to do with "rendering is not a good as".....

It looks to me like the heavier weighted (bold) fonts are not installed properly.

Maybe follow some directions on the net on how to install fonts on Linux, for example:

How to Manually Install, Update, and Uninstall Fonts on Linux

and

How to Manage Fonts in Linux | Linux.com | The source for Linux information
# 9  
On Fedora I have installed those in addition to the fonts already installed by default installation)

On Slackware with the command lsof I get fonts used when I open the webpage



Code:
DejaVuSans-Bold.ttf
DejaVuSans-ExtraLight.ttf
DejaVuSans.ttf
DejaVuSansMono-Bold.ttf
DejaVuSansMono.ttf
DejaVuSerif-Bold.ttf
DejaVuSerif.ttf
LiberationMono-Bold.ttf
LiberationMono-Regular.ttf
LiberationSans-Bold.ttf
LiberationSans-Regular.ttf

Then I copy the fonts name on file called fonts2 and searching on Fedora


Code:
while read line;do sudo locate  $line;done < fonts2 > fonts3

The line of fonts2 are 11


Code:
DejaVuSans-Bold.ttf
DejaVuSans-ExtraLight.ttf
DejaVuSans.ttf
DejaVuSansMono-Bold.ttf
DejaVuSansMono.ttf
DejaVuSerif-Bold.ttf
DejaVuSerif.ttf
LiberationMono-Bold.ttf
LiberationMono-Regular.ttf
LiberationSans-Bold.ttf
LiberationSans-Regular.ttf

The line of fonts3 are 13


Code:
/usr/share/fonts/dejavu/DejaVuSans-Bold.ttf
/usr/share/fonts/dejavu/DejaVuSans-ExtraLight.ttf
/usr/share/fonts/dejavu/DejaVuSans.ttf
/usr/share/fonts/dejavu/DejaVuSansMono-Bold.ttf
/usr/share/fonts/dejavu/DejaVuSansMono.ttf
/usr/share/fonts/dejavu/DejaVuSerif-Bold.ttf
/usr/share/fonts/dejavu/DejaVuSerif.ttf
/usr/share/fonts/liberation/LiberationMono-Bold.ttf
/usr/share/fonts/liberation/LiberationMono-Regular.ttf
/usr/share/fonts/liberation/LiberationSans-Bold.ttf
/usr/share/fs-uae-arcade/arcade/res/LiberationSans-Bold.ttf
/usr/share/fs-uae-launcher/arcade/res/LiberationSans-Bold.ttf
/usr/share/fonts/liberation/LiberationSans-Regular.ttf

So I think I have the right fonts installed
# 10  
Did you check the permissions of the font files to make sure the userids have permissions to access them?

I guess you have already checked all file ownership and permissions.

So then as the required user, you can run the command to list all the available fonts

I assume you did that already?

Edit: Sorry heading to the airport. Maybe someone else can help you.....

Cheers
# 11  
Maybe post the output of

Code:
fc-list

... on both machines and compare them.

Ref:

Code:
https://www.unix.com/man-page/debian/1/FC-LIST/

# 12  
Thanks for help.
This is the fc-list output from Fedora


Code:
/usr/share/fonts/google-roboto/Roboto-BoldItalic.ttf: Roboto:style=Bold Italic


This is the fc-list output from Slackware


Code:
/usr/share/fonts/Type1/n019003l.pfb: Nimbus Sans L:style=Regular

# 13  
Yeah, it's pretty obvious your fonts are installed very differently on your two machines.

So, you need to work on your font installation and get the fonts you want with the correct fonts weights installed.

See if this link helps you:

FYI, on my main Ubuntu Linux box:
