Description Need Real Name 2002-01-14 16:19:41 UTC
Description of Problem: I have two qt's installed qt-2.3.1 and qt-3.0. Font aliasing worked fine 
until I upgraded the 3.x rpm's to the latest 3.0.2.cvs in rawhide. Now, viewing the files in 
kpackage for 2.3.1-5 shows the file listing for 3.0.2 and anti-aliasing is gone from KDE and all Qt 

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


Steps to Reproduce:
1. rpm -ivh qt-3.0.2.cvsxxxx.rpm

Actual Results:

I don't think this is in any way related to your qt 3.x installation. KDE 2.x doesn't use Qt 3.x, so it doesn't even notice this installation.

If you're using some odd configuration, try setting QTDIR to /usr/lib/qt-2.3.whatever to make sure Qt 2.x (which is still used by KDE 2.x) finds all its files; this shouldn't make a difference though.

Comment 2 Need Real Name 2002-01-15 15:07:20 UTC
I can infer that the 2.x libraries work from running the dynamic version of the opera browser and I 
have been installing (mostly just upgrading 3.x) and running the two qt libraries (2.x/3.x) via 
rpm for many months. My QTDIR is set to /usr/lib/qt3. Since rpm -q qt returns two entries, the way I 
have been upgrading 3.x is via rpm -e qt-3.0.x, then rpm -i qt-3.0.x (there's probably a better way). 
This paticular time, I noticed, however, that opera, KDE and other qt-based apps were no longer 
showing AA fonts. Suspicious, I checked KPackage (the way I inventory rpm's) which lists the 
files under qt-2.x as the very files for qt-3.x. I tried reinstalling qt-2.3.1-5. The package now 
shows the correct files, but still no AA. QT_XFT is set to true and qtconfig AA is selected.

Please verify this with a newer version of Red Hat Enterprise Linux or
Fedora Core and reopen it against the new version if it still occurs.

Closing as "CURRENTRELEASE" for now.
