====How to Improve Font Rendering====

~If the fonts appear blocky/pixelated changing a script will improve the rendering - this applies to [[Puppy526 Puppy 5.28]].
~Edit the file ##/etc/fonts/local.config## to include the following code
<?xml version="1.0"?>
<!DOCTYPE fontconfig SYSTEM "fonts.dtd">
<!-- /etc/fonts/local.conf file for local customizations -->
<!-- Enable sub-pixel rendering -->
<match target="font">
<test qual="all" name="rgba">
<edit name="rgba" mode="assign"><const>rgb</const></edit>

<!-- suggested by 'upnorth'
Reject bitmap fonts -->
<patelt name="scalable"><bool>false</bool></patelt>
~Often this is just case of removing two comment tags (##<!-- -->##)
