Wink comparion

I've tried dugan's four packages(ubuntu and cleartype both), and the libXft patch from arch. Following is the snapshot of emacs after installing dugan's four packages and "mine":

If you look carefully, you'll find the fonts(minibuffer esp.) in dugan's is a little blurred. I've also tried dugan's libXft package with ubuntu patch, the same effects as above as far as I can see.
Dugans' other three packages work nicely here. So I prefer the combination of the cairo, freetype, fontconfig from dugan and libXft in the attachment.

Okay, guys, I've fixed the libXft SlackBuild so that it detects the ARCH the "new" way. You don't have to set the ARCH environment variable anymore.

esom: I recommend Mediafire for hosting.

dugan no doubt has our best interest in mind. Thanks BTW, my fonts look beautiful!!!
Hehe, thanks for the suggestion! I have been getting a little lazy these days, but you are absolutely right. One should definitely do at least a look through of a script before running as root. However I did glance at this script, after running and getting the error =( and missed having the variable set to a different ARCH. Just saw the condition statements and thought it would autodetect...

Thanks for the comparison!
