Description Gen Zhang 2006-03-31 15:36:31 EST
Description of problem:
Text is not antialiased. Perhaps a problem with not building with freetype?

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

How reproducible:
Always, easily. Winecfg should have antialiased text, based on experience from
building by hand.

I know that this is probably fair low priority, but it would be nice to see
everything in antialiased goodness. It always amused me that I could get nicer
fonts in my Windows apps in Wine than on Windows proper. :)
Comment 1 Gen Zhang 2006-03-31 16:22:30 EST
Installing Firefox, it shows that the only fonts it sees are System, Courier and
MS Sans Serif. It is undoubtly a font issue. On the other hand, the first time
wine started it took a very long time to scan through all the fonts on the
system, so it's not entirely that it can't find any fonts.
Comment 2 Andreas Bierfert 2006-04-02 04:51:40 EDT
This bug will be fixed in the near future... Thanks so for reporting it :)
Comment 3 Gen Zhang 2006-04-02 08:06:20 EDT
I'm not sure if I should be asking this here, but how are you currently building
the package? I tried downloading the SRPM, but it's not tagged for x86_64. Do I
just throw in a --target=i386? What about i386 *-devel packages?
Comment 4 Andreas Bierfert 2006-04-03 08:02:16 EDT
Should be fixed in 0.9.11 release... please reopen if you still have problems
with this.
Comment 5 Gen Zhang 2006-04-03 14:46:49 EDT
Sorry, but I don't seem to see any change here... Tried regenerating .wine by
removing it and re-running wineprefixcreate, but it didn't make any difference
Comment 6 Andreas Bierfert 2006-04-03 16:44:26 EDT
even with 0.9,11... that indeed is strange...
I don't have a clue... could you attach a screenshot (or mail me direct?) thanks

Comment 9 Gen Zhang 2006-04-04 06:00:32 EDT
I've just realised that I never said I'm on amd64... but should that even
matter? This also relates to the question about building from src earlier.
Comment 10 Andreas Bierfert 2006-04-04 06:23:37 EDT
No that should indeed not matter... I am on x86_64 myself...
Comment 11 Gen Zhang 2006-04-04 07:10:31 EDT
Then may I ask how you are generating the i386 rpms from the srpm posted in the
extras repos? Currently I can't do rpmbuild on them because I don't have i386
devel packages.
Comment 12 Andreas Bierfert 2006-04-04 07:12:13 EDT
Well actually I don't on that box (but you can always use mock for that as
well). I do testbuilds on my i386 and the buildsystem does the same...
Comment 13 Gen Zhang 2006-04-25 04:54:33 EDT
Still seeing it with 0.9.12... Am I alone in seeing this?
Comment 14 Gen Zhang 2006-05-18 15:06:01 EDT
Appears to be fixed. What changed?
Comment 15 Andreas Bierfert 2006-05-18 18:28:32 EDT
Nothing on my end +)... thanks for the reply.
