Mozilla 1.5 in RH9


Hi all,

I tried to to install Mozilla 1.5 on Redhat 9 and althought the installation worked great, i have a problems with the way it displays the fonts.

here is a screenshot of how it looks :
idoru.no-ip.info/ss.png

The left window is running Mozilla 1.5, and the right one has Mozilla 1.2 wich came with Redhat 9, for some reason Mozilla 1.2 is using Antialiazed fonts and the Mozilla 1.5 is not.

Can someone please be so kind as to try and explain to me how to fix that?
please bear in mind i am but a n00b. Been using Linux for only one month.

Thanks in advance!

In /etc/X11
You have a XF86Config file.
Inside there is a Files section, and in there there is a font section. It has the font paths.
Where is says:
(Bear in mind that insetad of the dots you'll have a path like /usr/something/something"

FontPath "..../misc"
Add :unscaled right after misc so it's like this

FontPath "..../misc:unscaled"

Do the same for the 75dpi and 100dpi entries.

Nope... no such thing...

in fact my file has this notice in it :
Quote:
Section "Files"

# RgbPath is the location of the RGB database. Note, this is the name of the
# file minus the extension (like ".txt" or ".db"). There is normally
# no need to change the default.
# Multiple FontPath entries are allowed (they are concatenated together)
# By default, Red Hat 6.0 and later now use a font server independent of
# the X server to render fonts.
RgbPath "/usr/X11R6/lib/X11/rgb"
FontPath "unix/:7100"
EndSection
everything else is working fine... the only thing i can think of is that early versions of Mozilla came with ./configure --enable-xfs but i cant seem to find that for M1.5

thanks once again

the standard mozilla from mozilla.org does not have XFT enabled. Look for a build that does... then your fonts will look like they did on Red hat's GTK2 and XFT enabled build.
