Description of problem:
Anaconda correctly detected my LCD screen, but did not set the font smoothing to
the option best suited to LCD screens.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
Install Phoeobe with an LCD screen.
What LCD device did anaconda say it had detected?
In general we cannot detect LCDs so we have not added code to adjust the Xft
settings accordingly. I am amazed yours was detected.
I'm using a Dell 1501FP analog screen which was DCC probed.
This would require a list of "these monitors are LCDs" which isn't very
feasible. The defaults are reasonable for an LCD, they're just not optimized.
