Package: fonts-noto-hinted
Version: 20171026-2
Severity: normal

Dear Maintainer,

I noticed that font in KDE apps and GTK+ apps (like GIMP) are different; the font in GIMP looks larger. Though the same font for KDE and GTK+ apps is set in the KDE settings (Noto Mono 10). On size 9, the problem isn't present. Also using an older package (from stable) solves the problem.
