Fonts in JetBrains products


 We have two Linux servers: old and new one. I provide "about' from old and new.

In the new server I have problem with fonts for IntelliJ products (PyCharm and IntelliJava).

What I have to change to fix the problem ?

I fixed the problem by the following:

- delete line   "-Dawt.useSystemAAFontSettings=lcd" in idea64.vmoptions

  Immediately, I can see some words in the 'Appearance' tab

- Change antialiasing for IDE and Editor in the 'Appearance" to 'Grayscale' (top choice still not recognizable, 'No antialiasing' available too)

- Still some words not recognizable

- After 'Apply' and 'OK' (I know where they are) everything works !
