Description of problem:
After the XFree86-4.1.0-15 update, smaller fonts were rendered w/o aa.
while this range is configurable, i cannot override the settings in
/etc/X11/XftConfig by changing things in ~/.xftconfig, because XftConfig
includes .xftconfig at the beginning, then overrides my settings.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. edit ~/.xftconfig to contain:
# Don't antialias small fonts
any size < 12
any size > 8
any size >= 12
2. run a gnome 2.x application with GDK_USE_XFT=1 set in the environment
Actual Results: Fonts of size 12 are not rendered with AA.
Expected Results: Fonts of size 12 are rendered with AA.
I've made changes to this a while back after chatting in IRC with Keith
Packard about it. I think our current config is much better now in
XFree86 4.2.0-6.45. Please let me know if the new packages work better
now for you.
You can catch me on #xfree86 on OPN also to discuss stuff with if you
