in thread Antialiased Fonts

in my limited understanding of how X fonts work --- I belive that the app has to be re-written to take advantage of the font-config(Freetype, etc) package, rather than the standard X11 font system.

Just having freetype and fontconfig setup doesn't automatically make apps antialiased automatically -- look at xfontsel.

If someone has altered tk to use fontconfig, then you'd be all set ...

    Not the app specifically, but the toolkit. Qt and GTK had to be patched to support AA fonts (GTK 1.x's method was a hack, GTK 2.x supports it natively)
