Is there a way to make LibreOffice more clear? On my computer you can see a lot of the pixels--it's fuzzy. [closed]

LibO displays very clear also on Macs.

Could you please upload some screenshots?

"new version" is a very unprecise information. Please inform on the exact version number.

You can activate anti-aliasing on Linux.

Here's the instruction for Arch Linux:


$ echo "Xft.lcdfilter: lcddefault" | xrdb -merge

To make the change persistent, add Xft.lcdfilter: lcddefault to your ~/.Xresources file, and make sure to run

$ xrdb -merge ~/.Xresources

If this does not work, you can also try adding Xft.lcdfilter: lcddefault to your ~/.Xdefaults. If you do not have this file, you will have to create it.

Try on MacOs to see if the folders are similar.
