Chrome does not pick up Font Hinting config


I have font anti-aliasing set to enable, subpixel RGB, font hinting slight.

Chrome uses the subpixel RGB, but does not apply any hinting at all. Whereas Firefox correctly applies font hinting slight.

How do I rectify this?

p.s. can easily check using KMag. Zoom in and the bottom of letters like e should be perfectly flat if slight font hinting is enabled.

an update on this.

the following in .Xresources and .Xdefaults fixes Chrome hinting, but oddly not Opera which is the browser I really want to use.

Xft.dpi: 144

Xft.antialias: 1

Xft.autohint: 0

Xft.hinting: 1

Xft.hintstyle: hintslight

Xft.rgba: rgb

Xft.lcdfilter: lcddefault

for .Xdefaults and .Xresources
