Description lohmaier 2005-01-21 20:25:17 UTC
Problem: Xnest does not provide the RENDER extension, so when OOo is run inside
an Xnest-Window fonts are not antialiased unless the color depth is set to 24 or
32 bit.

Gnome and other applications use antialiasing even in 16bit.

see also issue 40919 and issue 3718

cp->hdu: I guess it's more appropriate to fix Xnest accordingly, however I'm not
sure how difficult it is to fix in OOo. Not for 2.0 anymore
Comment 2 lohmaier 2005-02-03 21:01:01 UTC
please see issue 40919 as well. Antialiasing fails although RENDER is available
Comment 3 2005-02-07 13:29:59 UTC
The antialiasing infrastructure in VCL was rather inefficent, so the text
antialiasing didn't use it. And the 565/555*LSB/MSB cases were not implemented.
Now that the AA infrastructure gets improved it will be much easier to do it. On
the other hand everybody is moving to 24/32 bit truecolor, so spending
development resources on 15/16bit AA text is questionable. We'lll rather move to
Comment 4 lohmaier 2005-02-08 20:24:39 UTC
I did not understand that comment at all (too much tech-talk :-) but I don't
care how this is implemented....

I just know that gnome-applications use anti-aliased text in Xnest, whereas OOo
doesn't :-)

(And I disagree with the comment: "everybody is moving to 24/32 bit truecolor")

Reset assigne to the default "".
