I am using multiple wine applications on my Macbook Air running OS X El Capitan. I have tried using both Wineskin and Winebottler in creating wine wrappers for applications that I use and both of them offer the option to enable "fontsmooth=rgb" using Winetricks. However, enabling this option seems to do absolutely nothing. I have also tried enabling fontfix amongst other things to no avail. How can I get Wine to enable font anti aliasing for my apps?
There is a better solution when downgrading XQuartz is undesirable: to disable new Truetype renderer in FreeType library by exporting FREETYPE_PROPERTIES variable to system:
- Open terminal app
- Go to home folder
open ‑e .bash_profileor
Add following lines:
export FREETYPE_PROPERTIES="truetype:interpreter-version=35" launchctl setenv FREETYPE_PROPERTIES $FREETYPE_PROPERTIES
Logout and login
It seems to be an issue with FreeType 2.7.0 that's part of XQuartz 2.7.10 and 2.7.11. Try downgrading your XQuartz to version 2.7.9 (https://www.xquartz.org/releases/XQuartz-2.7.9.html).
