Subpixel hinting & Libreoffice

Hi!

So i’ve managed to improve the fonts in OpenSUSE with the help of that Muzlock subpixel hinting tutorial, and would like to do the same in Libreoffice.

Does anyone know how to do that, because google doesn’t help one bit?

Thank you!

Hi
If your going to use one, use the packman one…

Why? Is that bad?
Haven’t tried the packman version, but the muzlocker (or whatever the
name was) never quite worked for me. The one from the link works really
good.

Hi
Because AFAIK it pulls in cario which isn’t needed, it may break
your system if other packages are updated based on a later cairo version
from the main version.

Ah i see.
But the main benefit for me was the creation of the 2 files. Like i
said, i have to check the packman since i never used that. I think.
And i use a different subpixel repo
http://repos.opensuse-community.org/subpixel/openSUSE_11.4. Is this
perhaps identical?
