[STR New]

Link: https://www.fltk.org/str.php?L3321
Version: 1.3.3


I tried to reproduce this w/o success on Linux Mint 20 (based on Ubuntu
20.04 LTS) using FLTK 1.4 (Git) and either bare Xft or Pango. I could
always see the underscores.

I looked around to figure out which kind of hinting applies to my system
but I'm not a Linux expert and I'm mostly using the default setup. Do you
know of any function/program that can show me the active font hinting type,
or can you give clear advice how (in which file) to edit what you described
"This X ressources should make the problem visible on systems that work
correctly by default"?

FTR: I looked around in /etc/fonts and I can only find:

/etc/fonts/conf.d/10-hinting-slight.conf:8:  <description>Set hintslight to
hintstyle</description>
/etc/fonts/conf.d/10-hinting-slight.conf:17:    <edit name="hintstyle"
mode="append"><const>hintslight</const></edit>

which seems to indicate that on my system "hintslight" is active despite
the fact that the fonts are shown correctly.

Two questions:

(1) Does this STR still apply, i.e. does it still require any actions?

(2) If yes, what could we do? Is there a way to change this setting on the
fly in FLTK applications, or what are your suggestions?

Note: if these questions are not answered or if there is no sensible
suggestion within a reasonable time (7-14 days) I'll have to close this
STR.
