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

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.

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.
