Following up on a previous thread, as I still haven't been able to solve
this issue. In the screenshot at
http://darose.net/Screenshot_2020-01-08_16-58-43.png you can see that
kalarm is using anti-aliased fonts, while other KDE and QT5 based apps
(like kinfocenter and qps) both correctly display the non-anti-aliased ones.
When I launch kalarm at the command line, it does say "qt5ct: using
qt5ct plugin", as it should. But I'm still pretty stumped about what in
the qt 5.14 upgrade caused this to break. Any pointers appreciated!
