Re: Fonts in Open Office not anti aliased

That test isn't reliable. Arial and Helvetica are obviously identical here,
but the fonts are most assuredly antialiased, as magnifying them reveals.
I might have set up an alias within OO.o itself, come to think of it. I have
a consistent problem with Helvetica. It wants to be a bitmapped screen font,
and it can't be antialiased. The best remedy is to steer well away from
Helvetica and use something else.
I wish I could tell you exactly how I got here. The truth is I got here by
wildly flailing around trying stupid things.
If you run KDE, the new font installer stuff is helpful. Beyond that, I don't
really have a clue. Whenever I try to understand how fonts work in X, I just
wind up very angry and frustrated. It's horrible.
