Re: problem with liberation fonts



Well no thanks, this is not a solution. I like them Medium hinted as they are.

Kevin, are you maintainer of freetype-freeworld?

As you may known, Ubuntu is using patches to cairo and libXft to
achieve smooth, nice fonts on LCD display - this looks just superb.
Check out my screenshot at http://www.hlacik.eu/screen2.png .

I have patched Fedora10 libXft and cairo packages with ubuntu patches
and have them available in my own repo which is located here
http://linux.hlacik.eu/

It can be added by installing
http://linux.hlacik.eu/fedora/i386/hlacik-release-10-1.noarch.rpm
unfortunately i am providing only i386 and SRPM packages.

Can you please look at those SRPM's or simpler, install hlacik-release
package which will update freetype , cairo, libXft for you?
After that ,please do not forget to add "Xft.lcdfilter: lcddefault" to
/etc/X11/Xresources and restart X server.

When you will then set in gnome Appearance, Fonts - Subpixel Smoothing
(LCD's) you will see that difference.

Can be eventually those packages being added to rpmfusion repo?

Thanks in advance!

David
