I've got subpixel rendering working in xterm's, but I can't get either
ordinary anti-aliasing or subpixel rendering working in mozilla 0.9.9.
Can you tell me what you did to get it working for mozilla? I edited
/etc/mozilla/prefs.js and added lines saying:
Then I ran:
% export NS_FONT_DEBUG=400
and got output like:
gEnableFreeType2 = 1, nsFontMetricsGTK.cpp 940
gFreeType2Autohinted = 0, nsFontMetricsGTK.cpp 956
gFreeType2Unhinted = 0, nsFontMetricsGTK.cpp 963
gAntiAliasMinimum = 10, nsFontMetricsGTK.cpp 970
gEmbeddedBitmapMaximumHeight = 1000000, nsFontMetricsGTK.cpp 978
initialize freetype, nsFreeType.cpp 310
anti_alias=1, embedded_bitmap=0, AutoHinted=0, gFreeType2Unhinted = 0, size=24px, "Microsoft-verdana-iso8859-1", nsFreeType.cpp 624
anti_alias=1, embedded_bitmap=0, AutoHinted=0, gFreeType2Unhinted = 0, size=48px, "Microsoft-verdana-iso8859-1", nsFreeType.cpp 624
But no antialiasing.
Have you got subpixel rendering working in an xterm? If not, maybe I
can give you a hand.
By the way, it seems to me that logic for the rgba setting in
XftConfig is reversed. When I set it to bgr (I'm pretty sure my Dell
Inspiron UXGA screen is bgr, as you go left to right), a small dot is
rendered as a blue pixel to the left of a red pixel, rather than the
other way around. Anyone else having this problem?
