Description of problem:
Using a default null beta install on two machines, OOWriter is not displaying
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Open OOWriter by clicking launcher in Panel
2.Look at the menus
Actual Results: The menus are not antialised
Expected Results: Antialised menus
This is easily fixeable. All you have to do is set the Display Scale to 110% for
OpenOffice to antialias the GUI fonts. Please see attached screenshots of before
and after and the exact location of the setting. Please fix this before release
as the current configuration is very ugly and my turn people off from using OO.
While we're at it, how about making the default document font "Luxi Sans" or
"Luxi Serif" insted of a default font that doesn't exist and is not antialiased.

This is the default look after installing null (fonts are not AA)

This is after setting the display scale to 110% (fonts are now AA in menus)
Yes. please make this change.
Hmmm. Looking at my OO on Null, my font settings is 100% and the fonts are AA.
Attaching a screen shot.

OO with default 100% scale showing the AA (clean install of Null)
Damn...this is weird. I did an install on three different machines and all three
were not AA. Did you install KDE stuff, just out of curiosity?
What kind of graphics card do you have?
I did a regular workstation install and have OO showing AA as it should.
No problems here.
No KDE here.
It seems to depend on which screen resolution you have. Anything higher than
1024x768 I get AA UI fonts. But with 1024x768 or lower I get the jaggy and
close to unreadable fonts. Note that this _only_ affects OpenOffice.org. The AA
is fine in all other applications, whichever resolution I choose.
(I did the Workstation install and it's the same on two computers using two
different graphics cards/monitors.)
I can confirm this behaviour.
In 1024x768 AA in OO did not work.
With 1280x1024 it does work...
In ftp://people.redhat.com/jakub/openoffice/ there's a new "ooffice" file that
sets up UI font scaling, which should get rid of this problem. Please test it
and send your feedback to Jakub or to the Limbo mailing list.
This problem is resolved with the new ooffice script that Jakub posted to the
libo mailing list.
This bug can be closed now.
Should be fixed in openoffice-1.0.1-5.
