View Full Version : wine fonts look bad after yum update (F10)

21st January 2009, 02:53 PM
I updated yesterday and now the fonts in my application (PokerStars) look bad (grainy).
Anyone know why this might be and what can be done to fix it? I reapplied "winetricks allfonts" but that didn't help.

open pc with windows
open c/windows/fonds or where ever they are and copy this content to a cd, flash what ever.
Open your fedora go to home/user/.wine/drive_c/windows/Fonds
Copy the fonds from windows into this folder. Or just merge.
Worked for me most of the time.

Wine also has font smoothing (http://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php?id=62334).

Thank you for the link! I used to have similar problems (Chinese font didn't display, Latin letters were displayed in coarse glyphs). Now it works great!

Though it's not perfect, but much-much better then before, even with russian letters!!!
