I am not a native speaker, please endure my poor English.
I have been using evince for a while and i noticed that evince does
not respect my system settings of font rendering when displaying pdf
I have searched the web and find several threads and pages talking
about this issue. Several different patches exist to solve this
problem. In most cases, the patch hard-code the subpixel settings in
function pdf_page_render. However, these kind of patches were rejected
because of the coding style.
My question is since evince is apparently a gnome application, why not
use the according gconf to initialize the appropriate
cario_font_options_t and pass it to the surface?
IMHO, poppler is a library and thus it does not necessarily provide
the user settings of the system. It should be the library user's (in
this case, evince) responsibility to set the according variables
I am not familiar with all the fontconfig, cairo, poppler thing, and I
am not sure if getting the subpixel rendering is as simple as setting
the appropriate font options. If it is not the case, please ignore
Thank you for you kind attention.
