Well I figured out what was wrong with my set-up. Long ago I had set some options from within Kcontrol -> fonts. When those settings are changed they automatically override the defaults within ~/.fonts.conf. Setting the KDE Contro panel settings back to the default "use system settings" and re-copying your examples listed above to my ~/.fonts.conf fixes my issues and the fonts even look better still as the correct Sub-pixel setting "rgb" (for my set-up) is now set properly.

So if anyone is experiencing strange issues and using KDE then you should check that your KDE -> Appearance & Themes -> Control Center -> Fonts -> Use anti-aliasing setting is set to "SYSTEM SETTINGS". Otherwise whatever you have set will keep wiping out your local settings and using KDE defined values.

With xdm, there's no need for ~/.xinitrc AFAICT.

But if you are going to keep ~/.xinitrc, then I would suggest sticking in ~/.xprofile or whatever file runs at "user xorg window-manager startup" in this crazy Xorg world:
Code:
/usr/bin/xrdb -merge ~/.Xresources

For me, Xft.rgba seems to be automagically set to rgb, perhaps due to /etc/fonts/conf.d/ or ~/.fonts.conf

You need freetype2/fontconfig/libXft from this overlay with ubuntu/newspr patches enabled to compile that, have you done that? :)

I was wondering if there are still any patch sets around for the "stable" versions of cairo (1.4.14) and libXft? Well, I guess that there is only one version of libXft in portage.

yw.

I'll add built_with_use checks when I can find the time and gather up the necessary 'can-be-bothered' factor ;)

I pulled in the soor overlay but when I try to emerge -pv cairo libXft freetype fontconfig I get the following errors:

* Overlay eclasses override eclasses from PORTDIR:
*
* '/usr/portage/local/gentoo-soor-overlay/eclass/qt4.eclass'
* '/usr/portage/local/gentoo-soor-overlay/eclass/qt4-build.eclass'
*
* It is best to avoid overridding eclasses from PORTDIR because it will

* --sync`. Set PORTAGE_ECLASS_WARNING_ENABLE="0" in /etc/make.conf if you
* would like to disable this warning.

These are the packages that would be merged, in order:

Am I missing something? I had been using the gentoo-china overlay and had great fonts then I did an update of the world and now my fonts are really ugly. From what I can tell reading through this (long) thread, I don't need gentoo-china anymore and instead just need the soor overlay, right?

The warning is just your package manager trying to masquerade the fact that its broken by complaining about perfectly reasonable stuff :P

Ignore it.

Having a little problem, using font-overlay right now, and everything is.. decent, can't quite get it as good as I remember it being ages ago, but it's decent, EXCEPT, this pdf:

http://boo.codehaus.org/BooManifesto.pdf

Which is completely unreadable, looks like spacing between characters is completely screwed up.

Screenshot : http://img216.imageshack.us/my.php?image=screweduplx7.png

Any suggestions?

Also, and quick howto on how to get it good now? So many different ways of doing it these ways, and they dont coexist too happily :p, it'd be nice with short lcd howto of which fonts in xorg.conf & installed/.fonts.conf/patchset. I tend to spend ages tinkering with my fonts now and then, and then the rest of the day trying to get it back to the way it was before I started screwing with it :P

You'll have to ask Paul if you want a Howto, all I know is how to mainatin the ebuilds (kinda) and how to make it look good on /my/ box.

eselect fontconfig list:

  [1]   10-antialias.conf *

Doing that I get:

Code:

Fontconfig warning: "local.conf", line 6: invalid constant used : lcdfilterdefault
Fontconfig warning: "/etc/fonts/conf.d/53-monospace-lcd-filter.conf", line 17: invalid constant used : lcdfilterlegacy


And while most of my fonts looks great, for example Times look horrible, could you list your font section from xorg.conf, and all the font packages you have installed?

cat /etc/X11/xorg.conf | grep 'font'
equery list | grep 'media-fonts'

That shouldn't happen with the ubuntu-patched freetype-2/fontconfig ... strange.

It doesn't here, at any rate.

The default times font also look really bad, probably because I've screwed around with it for so long, and have some "stale" fonts installed or something.

The output of :
cat /etc/X11/xorg.conf | grep 'font'
equery list | grep 'media-fonts'

Would help a lot, so I can clear out the fonts packages I have that aren't needed.

I achieved a better looking times font by enabling 70-no-bitmaps.conf and of course disabling 70-yes-bitmaps.conf ;-)

Specify lcdfilterblah in ~/.Xresources and not in ~/.fonts.conf

That means not in /etc/fonts/

Ubuntu messed up there. I'm quite happy to forgive them, since they have the best font rendering.

What's the difference between those two files? I have always made my changes in ~/.fonts.conf

I think we all agree that the Ubuntu fonts have a better looking, why don't the gentoo devs use the ubuntu patchs?

What's the "official" source/overlay? I have seen tar files, svn sources, git sources, xeffects overlay, fonts overlay,... I'ts a mess. I will not volunteer for writing docs as my english is bad but if you need my help for other things I'm available.

I'd like to know when people are getting those warnings.

Because I've got lcdfilter stuff set in fonts.conf, and no warning :?: 8O
