Weird font in use by MM desktop


My MM desktop app uses special font on specific text areas.
I don’t think this is a bug as I didn’t find any bug report on the net that points this problem out.
It better looks like a font misconfiguration, but I don’t have such a customized system (I’ve never changed fonts settings).


  • Operating System: Ubuntu 20.04.1 LTS
  • Mattermost Desktop App version: 4.6.1
  • Mattermost Server version: 5.27.0 and 5.30.6
  • Installed with Snapcraft

Steps to reproduce

Just use the app (screenshots follow)

Following is an ugly workaround…

…to be able to print all my screenshots (new users are restricted to only 1 picture)
workaround to show all my screenshots

I can provide more information if you ask me for.

Thank you for you help :slight_smile:

I don’t know why but the issue has been resolved by itself.

Things that might have influenced:

  • recent upgrade of the 5.27.0 MM server to 5.30.6 (like the other one…)
  • last regular system upgrades (but no upgrade of MM desktop I believe)

I don’t think it can help anybody else…
