This is my first post on the forum. I'm curious about the potential inclusion of Infinality's patches in LMDE. The way I've got it set up now is that I (1) checkout freetype2 from git (git://git.sv.nongnu.org/freetype/freetype2.git), (2) apply Infinality's patches (http://www.infinality.net/fedora/linux/ ... 64.tar.bz2), and (3) replace /etc/fonts with /etc/fonts from Ubuntu's fontconfig-config (http://packages.ubuntu.com/raring/fontconfig-config).
The end result is really nice. In my opinion, the best font rendering I've seen anywhere else. Of course, I might not be following the correct procedure to adjust font rendering (or a logical one), but I the end result is great. I was curious about what other people do to the default set up in LMDE, and whether there's room for discussion to include better font rendering by default in LMDE?
