Subpixel rendering and xrandr
I have an LCD monitor, and have enabled subpixel rendering (Desktop->Preferences->Fonts in gnome).
My LCD can be rotated, and I have placed a couple of icons on the upper taskbar to give me a "normal" or "rotated" desktop. When the desktop is rotated, the subpixel rendering is wrong. This can be fixed by clicking the Details tab in the above-mentioned fonts menu, but this is too unweildy a solution if I am to use my screen in both orientations on a regular basis.
Is there a command, executable from the command-line, that can change the subpixel ordering between horizontal and vertical? If so, I can build a shell script (with root permissions if need be) to execute both xrandr and change the subpixel ordering. Perhaps there's another way to do this?
A quick web search suggests that this should happen automatically, but it doesn't, and the Gnome font widget (Desktop->Preferences->Fonts->Details) doesn't update either, suggesting that Gnome is overriding xrandr.
Any help here would be welcome...
