Bug Description

Binary package hint: gnome-settings-daemon

I am using the lcdlegacy filter for subpixel rendering of my fonts (see http://martin.ankerl.com/2009/01/22/beautiful-font-hinting-in-ubuntu-810 and bug #153521). After upgrade from intrepid to jaunty, my fonts were again all blurred. After a lot of digging I identified gnome-settings-daemon as the culprit: even if i put Xft.lcdfilter:lcdlegacy into my .Xresources (and into /etc/X11/Xresources/local-unblur-fonts), xrdb -query shows Xft.lcdfilter:lcddefault. This is done in 40_xres_lcddefault.patch. The only way to change this seems to be to recompile the package (or binary patching /usr/lib/gnome-settings-daemon-2.0/libxsettings.so, which I have done). Imho, gnome-settings-daemon should not force a specific setting of lcdfilter or at least respect the current setting.
