Xft Antialiased Font Support Now Available in Linux

Saturday October 19th, 2002

"I've installed the RPMs on my RH8 system, and pages look simply beautiful now. Even the browser menus and widgets are antialiased. I've put up a screen shot here: http://vocaro.com/antialiased-mozilla.png."

More experimental Xft builds are available from komodo.mozilla.org. Xft support is not currently enabled in the default Linux builds.

You might want to install M$ corefonts from <http://corefonts.sourceforge.net/> (you can just cp *.ttf ~/.fonts/)

Now set mozilla to use your favourite fonts from preferences. Here's my setup: Proportional: Sans Serif Serif: Times New Roman Sans-serif: Arial Cursive: URW Chancery L Fantasy: Comic Sans MS Monospace: Courier New
