Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 302241
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:12:16 EST
Description of problem:
It seems the freetype autohinter has a problem with ligatures. When you type a
suite of fffff in a text box that uses a font including ligatures (like DejaVu
sans) you'll see the autohinter size "ff" and "f" differently
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Yeah, seen that. I'm guessing that autohinter doesn't know about ff.
But, upstream please. I'm not going to hack on freetype here.
Can you point me to a bug tracker upstream cares about? Or use your powers as
Fedora maintainer to get upstream to create a category on freedesktop.org?
Fedora hits a ton of autohinter problems since other distros just use the
patent-encumbered engine, and the reports are just blackholed right now
yay for the reformated sourceforge issue manager.
No wonder there's only 21 open issues :(
