I really like Gnome Control Center and its behaviour that preferences
like font settings are set system-wide automatically so that KDE
applications look just as Gnome applications.
But as I use a blackbox-like window manager instead of the Gnome desktop
environment I have to start gnome-settings-daemon "by hand" in .xinitrc
right before the window manager. The settings daemon however is not
very fast at booting so font settings are not adopted in the window
manager's texts (such as titlebars, menus, ...).
I seem to prefer a very exotic configuration as the Gnome Control Center
is the only control center which has what I want:
* rgba_order = rgb
* antialiasing = grayscale
* dpi = 96
* hinting = none
I like it because it gives me smooth fonts whithout horrible
rgb-subpixels. KDE control center only gives me rgb-subpixels and so do
configuration files for X I found.
What I want to know is whether I am able to set exactly _these_ settings
above without using the settings daemon? Are there configuration files
for X (or for Gnome,GTK) to do so? Are there any X library functions
that allow me to do it faster than the settings daemon?
Many thanks in advance, Johannes
