freetype-6.3.8.pup and bitstream.pup are available in the additional software forum if you want to try. To get the fonts in gtk apps you will have to edit you gtkrc files.

Thanks Bombay.
hmmm... different,but not perfect.

Must play around with the settings a bit.
I think the freetype has the most important effect.

I personally prefer non-Antialiased fonts, how they are used by Gtk1.
On my old Mandrake I once had found a way, to activate AA only for large fonts.
must find out again, how that works.

i recompiled gdkxft and it produced a gtkrc file. I merged the contents of this with my gtk theme. However qtcurve does this by itself no need to edit the gtkrc. I will upload these files later.

Guest, no, this is for xft1 only, but puppy uses xft2 I think?

I get no effects on gtk2 and Mozilla.

gtkrc created by gdkxft recompile. edit it to your liking. I have edited it to use one font for all bitstream vera. details on how to get bitstream vera in x are available here http://www.murga.org/~puppy/viewtopic.php?t=4671&highlight=. you will also have to recompile gdkxft. I dont know waht all files have been changed by it, so I have not been able to make a dotpup out of it.

ok, thanks.

I found a setting now, that is ok for me.
In Mozilla I chose Bitstream Vera, and I installed your freetype.pup.
Then I deleted all files in /etc/fonts.
I did this just for testing, and was quite astonished then that it looks good Twisted Evil

This throws an errormessage when starting leafpad from a console:
Fontconfig error: Cannot load default config file
But leafpad starts without problems Cool

Yes, xft2.
You have to edit /etc/fonts/local.conf.

Put something like this in it:
Code:
<?xml version="1.0"?>
<!DOCTYPE fontconfig SYSTEM "fonts.dtd">
<!-- /etc/fonts/local.conf file for local customizations -->
<fontconfig>

        <match target="font">
            <test name="size" compare="less">
                <double>11</double>
            </test>
            <edit name="antialias" mode="assign">
                <bool>false</bool>
            </edit>
        </match>
        <match target="font">
            <test name="pixelsize" compare="less" qual="any">
                <double>11</double>
            </test>
            <edit mode="assign" name="antialias">
                <bool>false</bool>
            </edit>
        </match>

</fontconfig>

PostPosted: Sat 17 Dec 2005, 06:53    Post_subject: a note to the moderators...  

I think maybe the last few messages should be moved into a thread of their own with an appropriate title. This info could be useful to people who might not look in the Misc part of the forum (especially in this thread...).
It's a shame to have useful discussions buried in irrelevant threads.

Yes I agree, This is a request to the admin to cut the the last few post irrelevant to the topic and move them to new topic 'freetype, xft & gdkxft tweaks for better fonts'.

A geeky looking desktop using xrootconsole from debian packages. Log on the top right is the x server log from /tmp/xerrs.txt and log on the bottom right is the kernel log from /var/log/messages.
