    Somehow, this smoothing option does not seem to work with DPIs less than 120 I know this thread is old, but would anyone know why?

    Smoothing for windows fonts in wine works only for fonts larger than ~ 14 pt, since wine uses another rendering technique for small windows fonts. Thus, you can see font smoothing in wine only on larger windows fonts or on custom fonts.

    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

    hello,
    the script is not available... can you help me?
    thank you.
