wine and wine-devel: smooth fonts?

Reported by: Tatsh (Andrew Udvare) Owned by: ryandesign (Ryan Schmidt)

Description

Been trying to figure out if there is a way, regardless of whether it is through X11 or Mac. It would be preferable to use the Mac driver. With completely default settings and no fontconfig, the fonts just appear un-aliased and blocky. I solved this on my Linux machine with fontconfig. I put the same file on my Mac and no luck there.

However, I think this may have to do with fontconfig still. There are some MacPort-specific comments here: https://bugs.winehq.org/show_bug.cgi?id=41152

Like the first commenter, I am skeptical that the cause is the point release in fontconfig. Could this have to do with XQuarts configuration when using the X11 driver? In any case, should the Portfile stop enforcing fontconfig? (have not yet tried this yet)

See #34745. Elsewhere (#52029) it's been suggested that we should have a fontconfig variant, which might not even need to be on by default. I've done no work in this direction.

No luck on building --without-fontconfig (keeping everything else the same). The fonts still render incorrectly, and I did not see a difference in window metrics.

When using the Mac Driver, it might be useful to enable RetinaMode when you're using a high DPI monitor. To do that, open up Wine's Registry Editor:

wine regedit

and then navigate to:

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Wine\Mac Driver]

and then set "RetinaMode" to "y". You may also want to adjust your DPI under the Graphics tab in winecfg.

Can we call this ticket fixed? I don't see what else can be done.
