Description Robin Green 2005-10-23 14:22:15 EDT
Description of problem:
Using evince, the antialiasing looks a little more smudged (particularly on the
letters 'a', 's' and 'e' for example) than with other programs.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open the file at the URL supplied, in evince on a machine with an LCD display
2. Choose a zoom level of "Fit Page Width" 
Actual results:
Text looks a bit off-kilter, especially for 'a', 'e' and 's' letters.

Expected results:
Text should be antialiased appropriately for an LCD, as in other programs.

Additional info:
My custom ~/.fonts.conf file (downloaded off the web) is attached.

My LCD is a desktop LCD (Dell 1905FP) running at 1280x1024 resolution.

This report targets the FC3 or FC4 products, which have now been EOL'd.

Could you please check that it still applies to a current Fedora release, and
either update the target product or close it ?

Fedora Core 4 is no longer maintained.

Setting status to "INSUFFICIENT_DATA". If you can reproduce this bug in the
current Fedora release, please reopen this bug and assign it to the
corresponding Fedora version.
