A set of instructions on how to fix the harfbuzz + Infinality issue and restoring good-looking, Infinality-like font rendering.

Disclaimer: Please follow this guide being aware of the fact that I'm not an expert regarding the things outlined below, however I made my best attempt. A few people in IRC confirmed it worked for them and the results looked acceptable.

Attention: After following all the steps run gdk-pixbuf-query-loaders --update-cache as root, this prevents various gdk-related bugs that have been reported in the last few hours. Symptoms are varied, and for Cinnamon the DE fails to start entirely while for XFCE the icon theme seemingly can't be changed anymore etc.

Check the gist's comments for any further tips and instructions, especially if you are running into problems!

Architectural Questions

  • Are responsibilities well defined?
  • Are the collaborations well defined?
  • Is coupling minimized?
  • Can you identify potential duplication?
  • Are interface definitions and constraints acceptable?
  • Can modules access needed data—when needed?
This file contains code that, when run on Python 2.7.5 or earlier, creates
a string that should not exist: u'\Udeadbeef'. That's a single "character"
that's illegal in Python because it's outside the valid Unicode range.
It then uses it to crash various things in the Python standard library and
corrupt a database.
On Python 3... well, this file is full of syntax errors on Python 3. But
if you were to change the print statements and byte literals and stuff:
