Changing fonts from Kcontrol will enable hinting and make it default. All this information it writes to ~/.fonts.conf
Last modified: 2015-07-13 13:35:52 EDT
Description of problem:
I have tried to change my appearance (spicifically fonts) from the kcontrol.
After changing the appearance i have logged into the Gnome session. I surprised
to see my hinting is enabled in Gnome, though it was not enabled. I have tried
to change the hintings from the Kcontrol and Gnome's Main menu => preferences =>
Fonts => Details => Hinting. But the result remains the same. After that i have
removed ~/.fonts.conf file, and logged into Gnome again. Then only my hinting is
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
KDE Control Center: 3.3.1-2.1 Red Hat
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Change fonts from kcontrol
3.login into Gnome session, you can find enabled hinting.
Affect the hinting style.
Don't affect the hinting.
Moving to correct component:
[root@wow ~]# rpm -qf /usr/bin/kcontrol
does it appear in FC4 devel tree?
Yes it's there on FC4 devel tree also !!!
Just now i got new thing. Open "kcontrol" (control-center). Click on
"Appearance". Now when you click on "Fonts" in that then only it will create
automatically ~/.fonts.conf automatically. Simply you can say that when you
click on "Fonts" in the "Appearance" tab then "kcontrol" will create
~/.fonts.conf according to the settings in the "Fonts" tab and make it default,
So it may be used in Gnome also.
