Description Unknown 2002-04-05 18:46:59 UTC
The anti-aliasing in OOo doesnt seem to follow the setting in my Xftconfig (do you use Xft at all? It would be nice if you did). And I so it does no do sub-pixel anti-aliasing. Sub-pixel AA is much much nicer on my laptop and it would be very nice if you supported it.

Reassigned to Ulf.
Comment 2 ulf.stroehler 2002-06-24 17:54:32 UTC
No, as far as I know we don't care about the settings in the Xftcongfig file as we provide our own freetype. US->HDU: could you do pls. some more investigation (put in your opinion) on this issue, before sending it as a feature request to FT. Thank you.
Comment 3 christof.pintaske 2002-06-24 18:49:28 UTC
HDU is on vacation, so no SUN but lots of sun. We do not use Xftconfig since we do not use Xft. We will reevaluate the issue whe Xft becomes a stable and integral part of XFree86.

HDU->US/FT: I agree that subpixel-AA would be a nice feature The subpixel AA is a very nice feature of XFT and we are considering ways to use it despite the issues mentioned below. XFT is very promising from a display standpoint and also for generalizing font discovery, font fallback and configuration issues like you mentioned. There are some problems with using it now though: - the basic promise of generalizing the above mentioned items only works when it is generally available and the API and configuration settings are stable. This is not the case yet on all relevant X11 platforms. - for some "exotic circumstances" like CJKV or CTL issues and even for printer layout we need very tight control over the fonts/glyphs and their fallbacks. With some work newer XFT allow this freedom, but the main point of XFT of making this work transparent for upper layers gets kind of pointless. Like in "all pain, no gain". - for legal reasons we have to have very tight control of the features compiled into libraries that XFT links to. Currently we do this by compiling them ourselves and linking them statically. With linking to a system provided XFT we might expose us to problems from this direction.

Hello Herbert, how is the state now? Was ist possible to get something done concerning sub-pixel AA?
Comment 8 email@example.com 2004-05-14 15:54:32 UTC
We should do it but I doubt the OOo 2.0 target....
Comment 9 Martin Hollmichel 2004-05-28 17:43:51 UTC
according to the announcement on releases (http://www.openoffice.org/servlets/ReadMsg?list=releases&msgNo=7503) this issue will be re-targeted to OOo Later.

Any news on this issue? It's 2007 and still no AA in OpenOffice in Linux (at least not on Ubuntu Gutsy Gibbon version...)...
