Description Ankit Patel 2005-05-17 04:19:13 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
disabled. 

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
KDE Control Center: 3.3.1-2.1 Red Hat

How reproducible:
Everytime

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Change fonts from kcontrol
2.logout
3.login into Gnome session, you can find enabled hinting.
  
Actual results:
Affect the hinting style.

Expected results:
Don't affect the hinting.

Moving to correct component:
[root@wow ~]# rpm -qf /usr/bin/kcontrol
kdebase-3.4.0-5
Comment 2 Ngo Than 2005-05-17 05:13:29 EDT
does it appear in FC4 devel tree?
Comment 3 Ankit Patel 2005-05-17 05:59:11 EDT
Yes it's there on FC4 devel tree also !!!
Comment 4 Ankit Patel 2005-05-17 06:02:43 EDT
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.
