Well...I'm not a Gnome user (I mainly use the gnome-control-center to change
font settigns for the GTK apps I use in KDE) and a fact is that the subpixel
hinting option is there in the Fonts section (Gnome). I think the option is
there but the funcionality isn't. You may think you activate it but unleess
you install the modified freetype package you are not getting subpixel
hinting. KDE seems more intelligent in this respect...as it KNOWS it isn't
available and the option for it is grayed out. That's what I think is
happening. I could be wrong though.
