I am using manjaro operating system. After the last system update I noticed a somewhat annoying thing when viewing pdf files in emacs with pdf-tools. The rendering quality become poor and the image is blurry. Does anyone has a suggestion on how to fix this. Thanks in advance!

  • Just for clarity, you are definitely still seeing a buffer rendered by pdf-tools? Check that it's not actually the default doc-view-mode handler for PDFs in Emacs.

    @phils yes I think so since I can see the pdf-tools menu when the buffer window is activated! Oct 6, 2020 at 5:58
  • @phils The problem is with emacs 27. Solved by downgrading to emacs 26 Oct 22, 2020 at 11:02
