It seems that something thinks my display device is an
LCD panel, when actually it's a CRT.
Check the file .fonts.conf in your home directory. This is the stanza
to turn off RGB antialiasing:
<match target="font" >
<edit mode="assign" name="rgba" >
Thanks. I'll try that.
Does fontconfig always assume (e.g., upon installation) that it should
do RGB antialiasing, or does it try to detect what kind of display I
have (e.g., by asking a lower level, say, the X11 server)?
Where is the display type supposed to be configured or autodetected?
... you can try different options for fontconfig
by running (as root)
I had tried that, but it didn't seem to be give my any options related
to antialiasing or the display type.
