@giddie With poppler version > 0.43, the subpixel rendering just does not work by just setting the subpixel rendering hint in cairo. The problem is not in the Object class along I guess.

Well, if you'd like it, here is my attempt at fixing the patch. The API changed for the Object class, which is used quite a bit in the patch. I've done my best to port to the new API, and it seems OK.

Incidentally, I've found that this patch doesn't actually cause subpixel rendering in most of the PDFs I try these days anyway :(

My patch is here:

I've run into the same problem with poppler-qt-lcd :(

I found that my patch no longer works on version > 0.43. Fallback to 0.43 and ln -sr "${pkgdir}"/usr/lib/ "${pkgdir}"/usr/lib/ to workaround some package depending on libpoppler. I will investigate it when I have time.
