Xinerama has made my Mozilla fonts go screwy!

Post by Glynd » Sun, 19 Aug 2001 05:41:46

For reasons that defeat me right now, switching to use xinerama has made
my Mozilla fonts go really whacky; some sites have 30-point body text,
Google has about 8-point, and some others are apparantly random. It was
all fine before I put xinerama on.

xdpyinfo says:

screen #0:
  dimensions:    2176x864 pixels (322x241 millimeters)
  resolution:    172x91 dots per inch

which I suspect is perhaps the cause of my problem.

I used to have a problem where Opera font's were horizontally stretched
(under X 4.0.3); that seems to have solved itself (under X 4.1.0), but
now Mozilla goes odd. This is kinda annoying, and I don't really know
what to do about it.

I'm using XFree 86 4.1.0 from Branden's repository on Debian testing.
Any suggestions eagerly accepted!

1. screwy font scaling with tt fonts

I have this same exact problem on every computer I have recently put
true type fonts on.

Here's a screen shot

Half the fonts are huge, and some are way tinier than they should be.
All the fonts that are the correct size are not ttf fonts.  I have
looked everywhere and cannot find anything out about this.  I have
installed ttf fonts from multiple sources, tried different versions of
freetype2, compiled X4.2 against different versions of freetype2,
compiled X4.2 with the version of freetype2 included with it, etc.
