Thread: Huge improvment by installing »fontconfig-infinality«

  1. #1

    Default Huge improvment by installing »fontconfig-infinality«

    Hi!

    Can anybody tell me, why openSuse (13.1 in my case) does not install the package »fontconfig-infinality« by default? After installing and configuring
    Code:
    sudo bash /usr/bin/infinality-ctl.sh setstyle
    -- I choose linux as style --, then log out and in again, letters are displayed a lot better. I really was flabbergasted how much the display was improved.

    So: why isn't this included in default installation?

    you might need to raise a feature request to bring it to the attention
    of the developers.your forums login will work there.
    you might optionally post back the url so that people can vote for your
    feature.

    Code:

    So I used your procedure and it worked. The font is smaller and clearer, but I am unsure what can now be done with the normal font setup. The read-me file seems to include a lot of manual things to do and no gui.

    The read me is here:

    /usr/share/doc/packages/fontconfig-infinality

    Binary/script run files:

    /usr/bin/infinality-ctl
    /usr/bin/infinality-ctl.sh

    Each Binary/script has a --help, but its only three lines. Both have a man page, but under openSUSE 13.1, the formatting is all messed up. I would say it was not installed in openSUSE 13.1 because it is not really ready for prime time and more of a work in progress if you don't mind tinkering with it. Just my opinion of course.

    Thank You,

    So how can font rendering be improved in 13.1. It really is not good.

    My fonts in 13.1 using KDE look great, maybe I am less demanding.

    I have not opened Libre Office until now but mine looks like yours, not very nice imho.
    Using James force dpi setting they look a little better but still not as good as could be.
