    Look ma' the pretty LCD display mini PET

    When I last saw WindowsXP' feature list I saw something called Cleartype which is a technology to make fonts ultra pretty on LCD displays and I thought... I've heard about that before. What Microsoft call a breakthrought invention is infact an old Apple invention called Sub-pixel sampling and guess what.. X supports it. All you have to do to get this amazing thing is:

    1)
    edit /etc/X11/XftConfig and append this:

    match edit rgba=rgb

    2)
    turn off any font antialiasing you might have enabled in fx. KDE.

    3)
    restart X

    4)
    it's recommended that you try the following, replace rgb with rgb,bgr, vbgr or vbgr to test which looks best on your LCD scree.

    5)
    Enjoy

    Does this have any effect on a CRT display?
