Description Alexander Boström 2004-11-13 22:25:24 UTC
Description of problem:
The letter 'ö' of Bitstream Vera Sans at size 11 and 12 is narrow
compared to an 'o' when subpixel rendering is enabled.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install FC3 and update.
2. Create test account and log in.
3. Enable subpixel rendering in the Font preferences.
4. Go to http://www.alexander.bostrom.net/ouml.html using Firefox.
Actual results:
The letter 'ö' is not as wide as the letter 'o'.

Expected results:
The letter 'ö' should look like an 'o' with two dots.

Additional info:
from bug #139194 for a screenshot.

Comment 1 Owen Taylor 2004-11-15 19:12:49 UTC
Looks like it is coming from a different font?

Can you:

 A) Do screenshots with the font selector from gnome-font-selector
    rather than firefox. Firefox font selection isn't directly
    driven off the system mechanismss.
 B) As for bug 139194, provide unscaled croppedscreenshots, rather 
    than scaled screenshots.

Comment 2 Alexander Boström 2004-11-15 21:26:14 UTC
Ok, here are a couple of more screenshots. Neither these are scaled. :-)

Comment 5 Owen Taylor 2004-11-15 22:12:07 UTC
Confirmed. Weird. Something is going wrong in the autohinter code
that snaps the width of the stems to integral widths. (Note that
the same thing happens for "mono" rendering.)

Comment 6 Matthew Miller 2006-07-10 21:24:14 UTC
Fedora Core 3 is now maintained by the Fedora Legacy project for security
updates only. If this problem is a security issue, please reopen and
reassign to the Fedora Legacy product. If it is not a security issue and
hasn't been resolved in the current FC5 updates or in the FC6 test
release, reopen and change the version to match.

Thank you!

Closing per lack of response to previous request for information.
This bug was originally filed against a much earlier version of Fedora
Core, and significant changes have taken place since the last version
for which this bug is confirmed.

Note that FC3 and FC4 are supported by Fedora Legacy for security
fixes only.  Please install a still supported version and retest.  If
it still occurs on FC5 or FC6, please reopen and assign to the correct
version.  Otherwise, if this a security issue, please change the
product to Fedora Legacy.  Thanks, and we are sorry that we did not
get to this bug earlier.
