[Bug 145604] Re: VRGB sub-pixel hinting causes black-on-black text rendering


Just to re-itterate success in experiencing this problem and solving it with the gconftool command suggested above.
Problem experienced across upgrades between Intrepid and Jaunty on 64bit dell Latitude D630.

I was experiencing issues which match this bug. 
Text in browsers during fade in or out transitions were blocky. 
Text in gnome-terminal when using a transparent background, the background blocks behind the text glyphs where less transparent than th rest of the empty space in the console window.
banshee player status popup would have blocky text during fade in or out.

Generally matching all the properties of this bug.
running the gconftool-2 -s /desktop/gnome/font_rendering/rgba_order -t string "vbgr"  command cleared the issue up immediately, without restarting compiz or browsers or console windows. 

Thank you very much for the solution, was annoying as all heck.
