== LCD-Filtering overlay ==
 
Funtoo Linux planning to integrate LCD-filtering overlay into main tree in order to have very good font experience. Before that the overlay available via layman and manual steps required as described below. Overlay consist of patched versions of <tt>cairo</tt>, <tt>libXft</tt>, <tt>fontconfig</tt>, <tt>freetype</tt> with the aim of getting nice hinting and rendering, emulate the Ubuntu/MS Windows/Mac OS X fonts appearance.

== Freetype ==
 
Freetype can be configured through environment variables (see <tt>/etc/env.d/99lcdfilter</tt> for a list of the variables and their description). Those variables can be overridden on a per-user basis by either redefining them in a startup file (such as <tt>~/.bash_profile</tt>) or by sourcing the <tt>/usr/lib/ft-settings.sh</tt> script with the desired style in parameter (you can, of course, source the script from a startup file).
 
 
usage: source ft-settings.sh <style>
 
 
<console>Possible styles: 
 
  default      - Use default settings.  A compromise that should please most people 
 
  osx          - Simulate OSX rendering 
 
  ubuntu      - Simulate UBUNTU rendering 
 
  linux        - Generic Linux style - no snapping or certain other tweaks 
 
  windows      - Simulate Windows rendering 
 
  vanilla      - Just subpixel hinting
 
 
Infinality styles: 
 
  classic      - Infinality rendering circa 2010. No snapping 
 
  nudge        - CLASSIC with lightly stem snapping and tweaks 
 
  push        - CLASSIC with medium stem snapping and tweaks 
 
  shove        - Full stem snapping and tweaks without sharpening 
 
  sharpened    - Full stem snapping, tweaks, and Windows-style sharpening 
 
  infinality  - Settings used by Infinality</console>
 
== LibXft ==
 
Only legacy programs still use libXft. The default configuration is defined in <tt>/usr/share/X11/app-defaults/Xft</tt>. It can be overriden on a per-user basis in the <tt>~/.Xresources</tt> or <tt>~/.Xdefaults</tt> files :
 
 
<console>Xft.antialias:  1
 
Xft.autohint:  0 
 
Xft.dpi:        96 
 
Xft.hinting:    1 
 
Xft.hintstyle:  hintfull 
 
Xft.lcdfilter:  lcddefault 
 
Xft.rgba:      rgb</console>
