Default Sharp fonts for Fedora How-To?

Hey,

i just saw the how to fir the sharp fonts on ubuntu but it doesn`t really work on fedora.. i`m getting close though.
the only problem i still have is that the fonts are looking good and sharp in the windows but text that is being displayed isn`t looking good at all.

with some parts it looks like they are still aliased..

i hope you (falko?) can make the tutorial for fedora as well.
thanx in favor.

In which applications? This works only with GNOME applications.

does firefox count as a gnome application
but gnome itself is also not looking the same like in your screenshots.. so a howto for fedora would be nice.

No, Firefox is no GNOME application. The same goes for OpenOffice and lots of other applications.

sorry.. i thought you meant the language that gnome was written in.
however i`ve meda a little progress in the fonts. it turns out that the fonts are getting ugly when i use: "Subpixel smoothing (LCDs)" and are looking better when i use: ""Best shapes" and i do have a LCD monitor!!

but i have no idea how to do those font hints that you describe in the howto.. that doesn`t work the same in fedora as in Ubuntu.. same with the fonts.conf file.. i can`t even adjust it because X won`t start when i do adjust it.

X doesn't start when you modify ~/.fonts.conf? Maybe there's a syntax error in your file?
