Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 738264
LiberationMono have different metrics for different styles
Last modified: 2011-10-09 15:53:40 EDT
Description of problem:
LiberationMono Bold and Italic fonts have metrics different from Regular and BoldItalic. This results in various artifacts, e.g. misaligned bold text in xterm or gnome-terminal at certain resolution and font size.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. using freetype-demos package:
# for f in /usr/share/fonts/liberation/LiberationMono-*; do
ftdump $f | grep -e postscript -e ascent -e descent
ascent for different styles is different. As a result, at 106 dpi at size 10 pt the rounded ascent is different, too. This makes bold characters misaligned in xterm and gnome-terminal (when used with freetype-2.4.6)
all metrics are the same
Full details are available in freetype bug https://savannah.nongnu.org/bugs/index.php?34156.
version 1.06 didn't have this problem. It looks like it's due to the changes introduced to fix bug 591559.
