    Hi.

    edit PS: there are 2 "Advanced" tabs (which are default) that make Firefox show what the original web site has up. You may have to turn those off

    What DE do you use? Because i was unable in my GNOME to enable subpixel hinting. No working howto or packages are available and hinting is working only in terminal..

    cairo needs a patch to enable full subpixel hinting.
    See freedesktop bug #10301.

    It most likely is still apply-able to 11.1 besides the one click installers, the alternative Zypper commandline that's also explained still works though.
    Or you can get a one click installer off webpin
    Special effects <- KDE 4.2 Showing off
    More KDE -> PINK KDE

    That's a nice try, but as i have said before, it is not working in GNOME and it was also not working in version 11.0 no matter which repository you will use.

    Fonts are hinted only in terminal and rest is without a change.

    Probably, you don't understand what i want.
    I want to enable subpixelhinting for Firefox in openSUSE 11.1. I don't need to install freetype2, because it's installed by default and subpixehinting works for me in KDE.
    Have a look on the snapshot.

    mmm...i know what you mean.. my answer was meant more for Axeia than for you :)
    anyway, i dunno how to fix it in firefox, but those KDE fonts looks sure better than mine in GNOME :/
