    Lightbulb Easy way to enable font smoothing in Wine

    As most of you already know, wine supports font smoothing, including subpixel since wine 1.1.12. The problem is, this feature is disabled by default. There are many advices in internet on how to enable it (which includes working out with registry etc).

    But I've thought that enabling and configuring such thing as font smoothing should not require any registry work. So, I've written a script that does all the job for you:



    Quick way to run it:
    Code:
    wget http://files.polosatus.ru/winefontssmoothing_en.sh
    bash winefontssmoothing_en.sh
    Enjoy

    It appears to have worked but I'm not sure to what effect.

    Could someone please post some screenshots of before and after?

    Thanks...

    Here it is. These samples taken in winecfg, graphics tab, there at the bottom you can select dpi, and see big text. First is no smoothing, second - grayscale, third - RGB subpixel.

    For some reason only 6,7 and 8 point fonts are smoothed. Anyway to turn this on for all fonts?

    Re: Easy way to enable font smoothing in Wine

    That's not correct. All font sizes are being smoothed. The exception is made for fonts that have built-in bitmap fonts. If font has one, wine would use it, and it won't be smoothed.
