@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.

There's 2.9 version now... also this .so no longer works giving galculator: symbol lookup error: /usr/lib/libharfbuzz.so.0: undefined symbol: FT_Done_MM_Var

0001-Enable-table-validation-modules.patch doesn't work on 2.9 I don;t have enough skill to figure out what it does or how works. so I edited the PKGBUILD to skip this patch and now 2.9 compiles and works well

Hi, I'm the new maintainer for now. I didn't test the package, it builds fine. I updated the patches and bumped the version. Let me know if there's any trouble.
