    Fonts - HD install

    In my neverending quest for perfect fonts I ran across this tip on Debian User. Create a file ~/.Xresources and put this line in it:
    Code:
    Xft.autohint: 1
    Then logout and back in and you should now be enjoying better looking fonts.

    Interesting, but I'm afraid that it gives me a headache.

    Thanks for the hint!

    Actually I had to put "Xft.autohint: 1" in ~/.Xdefaults
    If I put it in ~/.Xresources, nothing changed.
