Description of problem:
I have this in my /etc/fonts/local.conf
Don't anti-alias small fonts
<test qual="any" name="size" compare="more">
<test qual="any" name="size" compare="less">
<edit name="antialias" mode="assign">
Every app on my system is anti-aliasing fonts the way I would expect
(ie. not anti-aliasing the small fonts), except for gnome-terminal,
which insists on AA'ing all fonts regardless of size. It does this
for fonts in the terminal itself. The menu and titlebars reflect the
Disabling anti-aliased fonts altogether in gnome-font-properties does
prevent the terminal fonts from being anti-aliased.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. edit /etc/fonts/local.conf and add above configuration
2. start gnome-terminal and set font size to value between 6 and 12
Actual Results: Fonts of rendered terminal text are anti-aliased
Expected Results: Fonts of rendered terminal text are anti-aliased
I'm using Lucida Console as my terminal font which very clearly shows
the anti-aliasing, especially at small sizes. I haven't yet found a
bitmap font that compares to Lucida Console.
