    Default Font hinting on Gnome 3

    Hi, i read that with 11.4 font hinting is enabled by default. Is this true?

    The fonts in Gnome 3 still look kind of shadowish to me. Its the standard i use which is the Cantarell font.

    So before i do anything with font hinting, i just like to confirm that actually.

    Thank You

    H
    Do you have the gnome-tweak-tool installed? If so run that and check Fonts are set to Full hinting.

    Um...no, but i will.

    The reason i am asking was, that i got the impression that it is enabled by default.

    Hi
    I think it's enabled in the rpms, but you still need to 'configure' it for your desktop.

    I can confirm: It's not enabled by default on the user's desktop.
