Software :: How To Prevent GIMP From Anti Aliasing Shapes
Jul 7, 2011
For example, if I fill in a circle with black (using the ellipse tool), then fill the surrounding with another color (a dark color) there will be a nearly white outline of the circle. I don't want there to be an outline. The whole canvas should be ALL black.
I want to make an 8-bit looking image that has very large pixels. My solution was to make a 50x50 image, zoom in, draw it with the 1x1 pixel pencil tool, and then scale it to whatever size i want.Everything went well except, when i try to scale it the anti-aliasing kicks in and blurs everything. Is there a way that i can disable anti-aliasing?
Anti aliasing is off in the top windows. This is what I want everywhere. Firefox and the help application (lower windows) still anti-alias. I DO NOT want that. How do I turn the anti-aliasing COMPLETELY off. System->Preferences->Appearance->Fonts did not do it.
Code: sudo dpkg-reconfigure fontconfig did not do it either.
I have a pc in my office. This pc got a Asus mother board. There is a strange issue with graphics on that pc. Anything which I draw using GIMP or Inkscape is not smooth. If I open that file on other system and just save that with different name, it become smooth. Earlier I thought its something related to graphic card. So I purchased a new graphic card (nVidia) but still problem is same. I also tried different OS (including Windows XP as system is on dual boot mode) but no luck. I have attached 2 files. One is saved on that PC and another is from the same file, but I opened that file on second pc and saved that again.
I am currently running Linux Mint Debian Edition (based on Debian Testing). I have installed an ATI Radeon 4850 w/ 1GB RAM. I am using FGLRX, and Catalyst Control Center seems to be working. However, even though I have selected "Override Application Settings" in CCC, I get no AA whether it be during gaming (Urban Terror) or in Compiz (3D Cube).
After years of developing on Windows (.NET) I kept hearing about all these new kids on the block using Ruby and Python. Since I wanted to try them I thought it would be nice to check out Linux at the same time. I heard a lot about Ubuntu so I am running Ubuntu 10.04 with VMware.
Everything worked supprisingly well and I didn't have any big problems until I tried browsing some webpages with Ubuntu. It feels like I am browsing the web without my glasses or that I am back on my old CRT monitor.
This is Windows Chrome vs Ubuntu Chrome. As you can see the Linux version is a little more blurry and the AA isn't that crisp. I did search Google a bit and found a lot of posts that said to edit the fonts.conf file but that doesn't seem to change anything. I also tried changing the rendering modes (Monochrome, Best shapes, Best contrast and Subpixel smoothing) but that didn't help either.
Since I might be doing some web development with Linux in the future it's fairly important to me that the fonts look the same as in Windows.
I'm not sure that this example has anything to do with AA - it seems that the font is just smaller on Linux.
I want to set my editor's font as Monaco-11, but it has no anti-aliasing effect. And when I set it to Monaco-12, anti-aliasing effect works. How can I make it also work for Monaco-11? I'm using Ubuntu 9.10
I'm trying to upgrade a headless terminal server like box from Etch to Lenny. Users log in to this box using a GoGlobal client and use applications such as OpenOffice and Iceweasel. Because of the ended support for Etch we want to upgrade this machine to Debian Lenny as soon as possible and in order to save time we decided to dist-upgrade instead of installing a new machine. I've done this upgrade in a test environment and everything is working as expected except for OpenOffice, which seems broken after the upgrade:
The problem seems to be caused by the anti aliasing features of OpenOffice and disabling these features in the options panel (Extra -> Options -> OpenOffice.org View -> Screen font anti aliasing) fixes the UI somewhat:
However, as can be seen in the last screenshot, disabling anti aliasing makes the whole thing look terrible. I've searches the net for solutions such as this one but so far I've not been able to fix this. Is there anyone who can point me towards what has changed in the way fonts are rendered since Lenny and what might cause this breakage for OpenOffice? Other applications such as Iceweasel work perfectly and look better then before.
I want to setup a Linux Fedora based Anti-Virus & Anti-Spam Server on my LAN. I have more than 60 Windows users with Proxy Squid running on LAN. Our Email server is hosted on the Internet. Because of virus/spam generate problem, emails are worst affected & the users have a lot of problem on Email, as the outlook gives error. It happens when a PC generates Spam & our IP gets blocked by the ISP for some time. Thats why I want to setup an Anti VIRUS/SPAM Firewall on my LAN (before the Squid), so these spams do not go past the Internet Gateway.Hope u guys understand my problem & suggest some useful links, software & documentations.
If you had Gimp 2.6 (with gimp-plugin-registry installed) and installed Gimp 2.7 to try its new goodies, but Layer Effects are not showing, and when executing "gimp" from console you get these *nasty* errors:
Code: This is a development version of GIMP. Debug messages may appear here. gimp-user-install: migrating from /home/user/.gimp-2.6 Traceback (most recent call last): File "/usr/lib/gimp/2.0/plug-ins/layerfx.py", line 23, in <module> import gimp, gimpplugin, math ImportError: No module named gimp .....
If you haven't install the 2.7 version yet. Before upgrading, backup "python" directory and then just restore it after installing 2.7.
Some of you may have had with issues after installing GIMP on Lucid Lynx 10.04. Which may be directly related to "gimp-help-en", which could prevent you from installing other applications and preforming system tasks. If so, use this method to fix it.
Process: (Terminal > $ sudo apt-get install gimp)
1. After installing Gimp go to the terminal:
2. Then load up the language support application:
3. Then it will ask you to install the "gimp-help-en", confirm it.
I think this issue is directly linked to a systems with multiple languages, but I haven't been able to test this theory out yet.
Is it possible to get rid of the windowshapes in the desktop switcher application? I just want to see the square of the desktop an it's title, not the ugly shapes of all open windows on it.Or any alternatives?
Here is my program. It asks the user for input and then prints a shape of a certain length. The errors I get when I compile are:
shape.c: In function "main": shape.c:22: error: expected identifier or "(" before "int" shape.c:58: error: expected expression before "return" shape.c:59: error: expected expression before "}" token shape.c:59: error: expected expression before "}" token #include<stdio.h> .....
I've been looking for documentation on the "Ubuntu way" of configuring IP alias addresses, especially in Ubuntu Server (servers being where IP alias addresses would tend to be used). I cannot find any documentation. It seems NetworkManager also runs on the server, and has no means to do IP alias addresses. I shut it down because it interferes with manually configured aliases (takes them back out or sometimes worse). But I am just wondering why all this is. I've had to modify startup/init scripts to get the aliasing working. That's not a problem for me since I have worked in Unix at that level for so long. But I would think there would be some standard way for Ubuntu Server (or any other) to do this. I just can't seem to find it.
I have a Macbook Pro which i want to install Opensuse 11.2 64bit(Upgrades to 11.3) The problem is that once i install opensuse and then boot via rEFIt, it loads up till the desktop is supposed to appear. All i get at this stage is darkness with a few coloured shapes in the background (Video driver not loaded).I can however reboot and go in via the failsafe option. Once in here i can use the GUI. I am a total noob with linux, can some one give me the instructions on how to install this driver. Its driving me insane. When i run uname -r, the results are 2.6.33-6-default I have added the following http repository (download.nvidia.com/opensuse/11.2/)
I want to make a anti-virus Linux to put on a USB drive for use with other computers that have viruses. The only problem is I have no idea how to do this. CLI-only should be fine (if there are any CLI anti-virus programs). So is there something I can get that's already made for this or should I get a regular distro and remove everything I don't want and install what I do? What tools should I get.? Also, a link to instructions on installing on a USB drive would be helpful (I also plan on putting some LiveUSB's on the same drive,
We are running squid as a proxy server having almost 170 users.The clients are using windows and after observing more than once there are some users that are sniffing on the network using maybe some sort of sniffing tool. Now can any body recommend some anti sniffing tool that can help us in detecting that culprit. Any software linux or windows based will I have tried wireshark if someone recommends that then please give some detailed tutorial on wireshark.
This might be a very stupid questions, but I'm wondering if anyone can tell me if there are any antivirus software for Linux?I know that it normally is not something that is needed, but in the company where I work they have a policy saying that every OS must have a realtime anti virus program installed on the pc's with automatic updates.
