Is there someone using this with {cairo,fontconfig,libxft}-ubuntu packages? Can someone post his fonts.conf? Thanks

Enlightened by multilib repo, here is the lib32 version

So the question is where can we host the i686 binary and who is going to make it. I can make the binary if you trust me. But then, I guess I can just make the lib32 pkg available somewhere. So where can I put it?

To have a lib32 version of this package someone should provide webspace to hold an i686 binary (compiled without processor-specific optimisations). After this is available, a PKGBUILD like the one for lib32-freetype2-ubuntu is easily done.

I'm not sure how a custom made binary can be distributed via AUR system. I'd love to do it, if someone here can give me a guide.

I use KDE, so mostly Qt is doing the hard work. I found the stock cairo works poorly with this patched freetype2, so I use cairo-lcd, which gives clearly much better results. I don't have experiences with -cleartype or -ubuntu. Maybe you can just try and see which one works best for you and share your result with others in the forum. And just for the record, I use hintslight and lcddefault with autohint set to false.

Hi jxy,
thanks for the package. One question: which type of cairo and libxft package do you recommend? -cleartype, -ubuntu or -lcd?
