How can we properly enable "Stem darkening" as it is switched off by default apparently: https://www.freetype.org/freetype2/docs/reference/ft2-properties.html#no-stem-darkening

Adding the parameter as above page suggests does nothing to fonts...?

@oxalin this is common knowledge.

Well the package is likely going away soon anyway (https://bugs.archlinux.org/task/60658).

For anyone installing the package for the first time, you'll need to import the following PGP key: gpg --keyserver keys.gnupg.net --recv-keys C1A60EACE707FDA5

Please, pin this comment.

How do I set the pixel alignment?

MarcinWieczorek commented on 2018-07-13 12:03

It is required.

Unable to build package. freetype-2.9.1.tar.bz2 ... FAILED (unknown public key) Error: one or more PGP sig keys coudnt be verified. Is it ok to gpg --recv-key manually? Thanks!

@amoka You can check this section from the wiki and the next section (Subpixel rendering):

https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/font_configuration#Pixel_alignment

Usually pixel alignment is enabled by default. In that case you just have to install this package and you are done. If it is not your case just follow the wiki.

Do we just install this or shall we also enable an LCD Filter (e.g. Default) as well?

Ok, thanks. I'll update the package when I get home.
