I'm using the fonts from the msttcore fonts package, and I have disabled
for both Arial and Times New Roman. However, these fonts do not look the
Windows. Especially with characters like O, D, C etc I see that with
are some extra pixels in the "curves" of these letters (sorry, I'm not a
don't know technical terms for this) resulting in 2 pixels width. In
letters have at that location just 1 pixel, making it look cleaner. With
I see this problem.
I think I've tried about every option of fontconfig (hinting, outline etc)
but I can't fix
it. Enabling FC_DEBUG ensures me I'm using the right font.
When I'm using xfontsel I _can_ select -monotype-arial-medium-r-xxxx
wich looks perfect. In addition, changing size (both large and small) keeps
a perfect result.
As far as I understand, therefore it must be possible to produce that result
Can someone explain to me how I can use fontconfig making Arial and Times
look exactly the same as in Windows? If it's not possible, what's the
Thanks a lot.
