text is displayed incorrectly in terminal and settings etc.

Asked by Margheriti on 2021-03-30

when I did the sudo update apt-get upgrade -y there was a graphical update where everything was 0b, stupid I installed it and asked to restart. after that i see 4 letters and the last one is brighter and thicker. the problem appears when he writes something and in the terminal everything is there by default, settings, file manager, etc. I tried to reset the system to the default and other methods but it didn't work. ubuntu 20.04 lts

Open Terminal on Menu bar on top select Edit. If no Menu bar - Right click on screen and select Preferences.
This opens Terminal Preferences -> Apearance Tab -> un-checkmark Allow bold text -> Colors Tab if you want color text.

The screenshot is your home folder. Open Terminal -> Right click screen -> Select Show menu bar ->
Select Edit -> Preferences -> Text Tab- click the Reset on Initial terminal size and Cell spacing.
Cursor shape - Block Cursor Blinking - Default
Click on Compatibility Tab -> Click - Reset Compatibility options to Default

If you create a new user account and log in with that other user, do you see the same effect?

Margheriti (rolfy) said : #8

Only fixed the desktop but everything else bee same as usual. TTY5(etc.) are normal

According to https://answers.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+question/696592 what you see might be caused by packages from the ppa:oibaf/graphics-drivers package archive.

Do you use that PPA?
