Re: [g-i] patch for the lines problem

A bit of history:

a problem [1] with Italic letters near the borders which was fixed
upstream; the fix caused some problems which can be seen in [2] and
was noticed when g-i switched to the 2.8.x set of libraries.

Upstream version of gtk+ is currently 2.10.3, and according to Mike
Emmel, upstream author of the gtk-directfb backend, it'd be
non-trivial to backport the fixes to 2.18.x libraries.

There are two options:

1. switch to 2.10.3 libraries

please note that while GTK+ 2.10.2 should compile correctly, current GTK in cvs ( and 2.10.3 too, IIRC) won't because it needs something like the attached patch that mike should be applying in days. I think GTK+ 2.10.2 is a good choice (2.10.1 had some issues, while 2.10.3 may not compile without the patch) for g-i, i feel backporting patches to 2.0.9 or 2.8.x would be a real pain.
