Non-antialiased fonts again....


I'm sorrry for asking for the same question again, but I'm quite desperate. It's impossible for me to make nonantialiased fonts look nice, like in windows os. I have SuSE 10.0 oss distribution, with KDE 3.5.2 and freetype2 with bytecode interpreter already allowed. I've came across almost all guides on the net, but nonantialiased fonts still look horrible. I think the problem might be in my monitor - it's 17" LCD panel Eizo M1700, I've read it's a bit difficult to tweak fonts to work well with LCD flat panels.

I would be grateful for any advice.

Look here. I've done that on Suse 10.0 as well, it works fine.

Here is a very related post.
As you will read in this first one, the solution comes downloading windows fonts.

and you've got LCD panel or CRT monitor? I've done that guide step-by-step, but no result... I think there might be a problem with bytecode interpreter, I'm not sure if it's really activated, although in the config files, there is defined and uncommented.

I use a 15" LCD monitor, but I wonder it that makes any difference. My main OS is Slackware and SuSE 10.0 ran in VMWare. Still the fonts looked exactly as on the screenshots I put into that page (which are from Slackware). I've even configured my DesktopBSD in the same way, the fonts look exactly as with Windows.

Did you like those screenshots? If so, we can go through the configuration if you want.
