The font AA should be fixed in 9.0.1 "GUI. Turned on font anti-aliasing by default for Linux. (Issue #212)"

I have created a .desktop file, if anyone is looking for one. Nothing crazy, but thought it might be helpful to someone.

Please complain upstream if you want any patches integrated into ghidra.

An alternative to editing the /etc/environment file, it is also possible to add the line

VMARG_LIST+="-Dawt.useSystemAAFontSettings=on -Dswing.aatext=true"

to /opt/ghidra/support/ I have added it after line 114. This is useful if you want to use this setting only for Ghidra.

Maybe this can be inserted with sed via the PKGBUILD if it is not harmful?

@Discoo: wow, that makes ghidra look much nicer, thanks!

also, I second the request for a .desktop file.

Tip if you have bad font rendering in Ghidra: adding _JAVA_OPTIONS='-Dawt.useSystemAAFontSettings=on -Dswing.aatext=true' to /etc/environment fixed this for me. (this enables system anti-aliased fonts)

@dopsi: This package will move to the full source build once available.

Shouldn't this package be named "ghidra-bin" since it is already compiled to bytecode? (see this question[1], the full source code is yet to be released).

A .desktop file would be useful. Thank you for making this package.
