XWindows & fonts : not always nice display
I'm using linux for many years, but I still have not got around the font problem :
I use various applications ( Lyx, openoffice, thunderbird, opera, nautilus,...) In many of them, I have to manually fine tune the fonts to have them displayed correctly, not pixelized.
Surprisingly, I have everything fine tuned under gnome now, but if I switch to KDE, every thing has to be done again. Don't do they use the same font manager ?
Why windows can manage all fonts correctly and not XWindows ? Does it have to do with truetype or opentype ?
