Description jacob@ximian.com 2002-02-01 21:59:59 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 Galeon/1.0.2 (X11; Linux i686; U;) Gecko/20020102

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):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.  edit ~/.xftconfig to contain:

# Don't antialias small fonts
    any size < 12
    any size > 8
    edit antialias=false;

    any size >= 12
    edit antialias=true;

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
