Making Java and Qt apps look good on Elementary
As anybody who has used a Swing app on linux knows very well, they render
fonts very badly. Now a guy has made a patch for OpenJDK 7 which makes them
look native. Here is the PPA:
This patch however requires having infinality installed. The same guy
maintains a PPA for that as well. Here:
Infinality configured to emulate ubuntu setup gives the same look for fonts
as current elementary default setup. I am using it, as of now.
This also has the side effect of making Qt apps render fonts like Gtk apps,
which is broken currently somehow (strange not broken in ubuntu).
I hope this can be included in the next elementary release.
