While the package itself seems to work I still lose font quality in e-Sword. There is no font anti-aliasing for the selectable fonts. The menu and tab fonts (set by the program itself) seem okay. None of the fonts I have loaded look good at all. If I open notepad I get the same: no anti-aliasing with what I type but the menu text looks okay. Thus I am back to 1.1.4 again as it does not have this problem on my machine.

Sorry MikeCindi,
I can't duplicate the problem your having here on my install. so can't point to any one cause that might be fixable. 1.1.15 works fine for me with both notepad and E-Sword.

Which font(s) are you using in e-Sword for the various frames (Bible, dictionary, commentary, and pop-up)? Is it the default (Georgia)? I'm using Deja-vu sans condensed. Perhaps I'll build wine myself and see if it makes any difference (not sure why it would but...). If that doesn't work I'll try using a new .wine directory.

Have a good Day.

With 6 final now it's a good reason to start with a "clean" install.

I'm using it on my laptop and Celeron desktop. The programs that worked with the previous version are working with this. MasterCook II is still broken.

After I get VL6 Final on my three Linux machines, I'll reinstall MasterCook from scratch and see if that helps.

I got a PM from krukurr who suggested some registry edits (see below for the only one I applied). This added the font smoothing that I was missing. Not sure why the registry value (unchanged from 1.1.4 to 1.1.14/15) didn't have the same effect on the fonts...

I ran regedit from a console and went to: HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\Desktop\FontSmoothing and changed the default value of "0" to "1". I tried a few other values (-1, 2, 3 and 5) but for my laptop's display "1" looked best to me. It would seem that only 0, 1, 2 make any difference.

Thanks krukurr,
Mike

Libgphoto2 is a dependency of wine Don't know exactly why but has been since at least version 1.0.1

you should be able also to get version 1.1.16 it's in the testing Repository.

enjoy,
