i used to run a Debian dist, and the xfree 4.1 debs has been able to display nifty subpixel rendered TT fonts.
(4 more info about this topic goto http://jmason.org/howto/subpixel.html )
However, i didn't manage to get it working under Gentoo the way it rocked on Debian!
I suspect the freetype2 package and its confusing hinting issues might have something to do with it.
I took my old XftConfig (from Debian) and set QT_XFT=true.
The antialiasing applies, but in a real nasty way (blurred, completely coloured, it seems...)
On getting the impression how it should look like follow the link above.
(Perhaps i could post some screenshot within the next days...)
Anyone the same problem, anyone known to antialiasing?
i'd appreciate any help!
thanks in advance, katakombi >8^)
