Hi,

I have installed libfreetype6 - 2.1.8-r1 and opie-freetype - 1.2.0-r0 on Familiar 0.8.2 with OPIE 1.2 for TTF font rendering display.
But the rendering, when I use it at size 10 without anti-aliasing is somewhat uggly.
I suppose that the bytecode interpreter is disabled like on most linux distributions by default.
Have someone compiled the ipkg's with the bytecode interpreter enabled or is there an other way to get the fonts rendered like on my desktop linux ?

thanks for help

Hi,

I have build a new ipk package ( libfreetype6_2.1.8-r1_arm.ipk) with bytecode interpreter enabled in OpenEmbedded development environment.
I have now perfect looking non antialiased TT fonts on my Ipaq , witch is far better for +/-10 size ttf's.

If someone wants the package, let your email, I send it as attachment.
I have build the package for the configuration:
OE Build Configuration:
TARGET_ARCH = "arm"
TARGET_OS = "linux"
MACHINE = "h3900"
DISTRO = "familiar"
TARGET_FPU = ""
(this config matches other arm machines to, I supose)

For instructions how to install and configure TTF fonts on Opie look at:
