Infinality font rendering

Post by dr0311 » 2016/01/14 08:31:38

Hi,

In my pursuit to get better font rendering on Centos 7. I am trying to install:

yum --enablerepo=nux-dextop install fontconfig-infinality
yum --enablerepo=nux-dextop install cairo
yum --enablerepo=nux-dextop install libXft
yum --enablerepo=nux-dextop install freetype-infinality

However seems freetype-infinality is not available on nux-desktop.

---> Package fontconfig-infinality.noarch 0:1-20120615_1 will be installed
--> Processing Dependency: freetype-infinality for package: fontconfig-infinality-1-20120615_1.noarch
--> Finished Dependency Resolution
Error: Package: fontconfig-infinality-1-20120615_1.noarch (nux-dextop)
Requires: freetype-infinality

I have tried configuring freetype-fedora repo(http://www.infinality.net/blog/infinality-repository/) but it fails on yum install with msg:

http://www.infinality.net/fedora/linux/ ... repomd.xml: [Errno 14] HTTP Error 404 - Not Found

Hello,

I've removed that package as it was conflicting with new stuff in 7.2.
You can use it at your own risk from here http://li.nux.ro/download/nux/dextop/retired/ (not a repo)

Thanks. Seems freetype-freeworld did the trick. Is there any additional package I can install for better rendering?

Do we know why inspite of such good rendering in firefox. Chrome Sux big time?
