Gdkxft transparently adds anti-aliased font support to
gtk+-1.2. Once you have installed it, you can run any (well, nearly
any) existing gtk+ binary and see anti-aliased fonts in the gtk
widgets. You don't need to recompile gtk+ or your applications.|
Important Disclaimer: A botched install of gdkxft has the potential to make your X configuration unworkable. For this reason, please read the README through to at least the end of the Quickstart section before you try installing, even if you are installing from an rpm package.
