Yesterday I've compiled freetype and fontconfig with Infinality patches.
While waiting packages compiling on the cook.slitaz.org I want to tell you more.
Package freetype-infinality is designed for SliTaz Cooking, but you can use it with SliTaz 4.0 if you want, because it have very simple depends existing in the both versions.
You can use freetype-infinality both
- in parallel with regular freetype (then regular freetype libs just be disabled, but not deleted). You can delete freetype-infinality and back to using regular freetype;
- you can use freetype-infinality instead of regular freetype.
Second news. Fontconfig package have Infinality addition to regular fontconfig. It have simple terminal-based style chooser, and I wrote extra-simple dialog using Yad to help you choose your system style of font rendering.
Ok, here are examples:
Windows 7 style:
Windows XP style:
Windows 98 style:
NOTE, that you need TFT (LCD) monitors to see font enhancement.
Display of fonts depends on the technology of the monitor, and on the resolution, and other factors such as the ambient light, the distance to the monitor, your eyes age, personal preferences...
Using Infinality patches you can control more aspects of your font rendering, and adjust them to your taste.
Wait for links where you'll can download packages.
