Subject: Font rendering is different when using -multiwindow
Date: Tue, 11 Jun 2013 07:14:00 -0000	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <> (raw)

When running applications with a full-screen or -rootless X session, 
fonts look fine. But when running the same application using the 
-multiwindow switch, fonts are rendered oddly and are difficult to read.

Here are some examples:

Correct (full screen or rootless):

Incorrect (multiwindow):

I prefer running as multiwindow because each application has its own 
unique window for focus. In rootless mode all of the X windows come to 
the front when one is selected.

Does anyone know why fonts are rendering differently? Can this be fixed?
