True Type Font Setup: Fonts Look Bold on Edges

True Type Font Setup: Fonts Look Bold on Edges

Post by Java Gu » Sun, 31 Dec 1899 09:00:00



I'm not sure why my fonts don't look right.

I have RedHat 6.0 and I'm pretty sure it installs a true type font
server, but some of my fonts don't look right in StarOffice.

I installed my fonts from the Windows partition and have the following
in my XF86Config file.

    FontPath   "/usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/misc:unscaled"
    FontPath   "/usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/75dpi:unscaled"
    FontPath   "/usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/100dpi:unscaled"
    FontPath   "/usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/misc"
    FontPath   "/usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/Type1"
    # Fonts copied from Windows partition (this comment is not really in
the config file)
    FontPath   "/usr/share/fonts/ttfonts"
        FontPath   "/usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/URW"
    FontPath   "/usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/Speedo"
    FontPath   "/usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/75dpi"
    FontPath   "/usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/100dpi"
    FontPath   "unix/:-1"

Here is a screen shot of what I'm talking about.  Notice some of the
fonts appear to be bold in parts of them.

This is unnecessary here if it is just TT. Only the X server uses this
PATH, and 3.x can't handle TT.

This is xfs. It's fontpath is in /etc/X11/fs/config. It will not use the
fontpaths in this file. Is the TT dir in /etc/X11/fs/config too?

Are you sure this is a TrueType Times font? Do they look better in NS?
I've got an adobe Times also FWIW.

Please turn off HTML.
