Re: [K12OSN] anti-aliased fonts?



Running xdpyinfo lists 27 extensions (including the three you mention).
Still, when I run mozilla locally (on the client), fonts are not
anti-aliased. I don't know if applets would at all be affected by this,
since they don't use anti-aliased fonts, it appears.

What I have also noticed it that /etc/XF86Config is set up to be a
pointer to /tmp/XF86Config. However the file doesn't exist (there is,
however "/tmp/XF86Config.1". Could this be an issue?
