Xft Antialiased Font Support Now Available in Linux

Saturday October 19th, 2002

Trevor writes: "As I learned from comments posted to a recent Slashdot article, antialiasing is finally available for Linux builds. There are also binary RPMs compiled for Red Hat Linux 8.0.

"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.

I tried the latest Xft build and looks really cool. I am using RH 8.0 so I copied my TTF files to ~/.fonts directory and when I launched moz everything looked great except slashdot and mozilla.org sites displayed really small fonts. I 've only been trying it the past 30 minutes so there might more sites with this sort of problem. Everything else looks the same. Anyone else experiencing the same problem ?
