* xsettings.c: Revert changes from 2009-11-23. Just use Xft
defaults (bug #5025).

As I suspected, that reverts also the good news I flagged in:


That is what I suspected also. You can do
% emacs -fn 'Monospace-12:hintstyle=hintslight'
and see if that is what you wan't.  Also try hintmedium.

If you aren't running Gnome, you should set that in ~/.fonts.conf (read more here: http://www.fontconfig.org/fontconfig-user.html):

<?xml version="1.0"?>
<!DOCTYPE fontconfig SYSTEM "fonts.dtd">
<!-- conf.d/sub-pixel.conf -->
<!--  Enable sub-pixel rendering -->
  <match target="font">
    <edit name="hintstyle" mode="assign"><const>hintslight</const></edit>

or if you wan't it systemwide, put it /etc/fonts/local.conf.

I tried all your suggestions, but none of them work. I have tried with 'hintmedium' and 'hintfull': same result. On Kubuntu, current Emacs-CVS is the only application which has a bad look, and this is not very attractive to new users.

Is it natural that a user does all this work (if it functions) to use an application?
