    GNOME 2 in Sid this Sunday
    Submitted by ddipaolo@jabber.org on Thursday, October 24, 2002 – 05:36
    GNOMEChristian Marillat and Colin Walters have completed all the steps required to transition GNOME 2 from experimental into sid, and will be doing so on Sunday: announcement here.

    Note the following bit: “Christian Marillat and I have written transition scripts, and they have been tested by us on some .gnome directories, but no one else I’m aware of has tested them yet. So if you haven’t helped us out by testing them already, then you will be forced to anyways this Sunday :)”.

    So, to all GNOME 1.4 sid users out there, you may want to spend some time this weekend to ensure your configurations are going to be safe come this Sunday.

    How does one get anti aliased fonts working in gnome2?

    I have AA fonts working in KDE, mozilla, OpenOffice, but not in gnome2.

    I’d heard good things about AA fonts, so I tried enabling them, and things were HIDEOUS. It just made my fonts all jaggy and tough to read. I guess it might be something with the high resolution on my laptop’s LCD, but I guess you could say that I’m anti-anti-aliased fonts 🙂
