Re: warning when upgrading xorg for testing
Sorry, the reply button of Thunderbird sent this to the private address
of Andreas Janssen and not to the list, and I seem to have slept.
Thank you very much for your fast and competent answer. My posting was
mainly a warning to others upgrading testing and a complaint against
NVIDIA's mystery mongering with their sourcecode. The fraying of letters
is indeed very slight and may be caused mainly by my glaucoma and by the
nv-programmers not knowing the modes of rendering Nvidia themselves use.

So there are nvidia and nvidia-glx packages in unstable now! I shall try
to install the ones for my card some time this afternoon. Up to now I
always had to install the original drivers from Nvidia for every new
kernel, and I no longer want to undergo this procedure and to see the
messages "kernel tainted" afterwards.

This happened because nvidia-glx from testing is incompatible with xorg
6.9. You can install the nvidia or nvidia.*-legacy packages from
unstable, . . .
The monitor section is configured correct. In xorg.conf, there only were
difficulties with the Logitech cordless mouse after update to 2.6.12
which I could solve by myself.
. . . and check if the screen size X thinks you are using is correct.
DisplaySize width height #width and height in mm . . .
This is installed. Working in several languages and 'hobbying'
linguistcs and ontology I constantly need UTF8-fonts.
. . . make sure xfonts.*-transcoded is installed.
This is also in use; when checking XFCE4 settings I found an entry for
'Sub-Pixel-Hinting' which I enabled, too. According to XFCE4 messages
the effect will show up after next reboot.
You probably also want to use AntiAliasing . . .
PS: reboot didn't make any difference.
Again many thanks for your prompt answer and
