While waiting for our Fedora ISO to download, I have been tinkering with some small-ish projects. There have been some calls about the font rendering in Google Earth 4. I brought down version 5 for testing and found the fonts were still not anti-aliased and looked terrible on our GNOME desktop. This post explains that Google seems to ship static QT libraries that do not render well. The post explains how to move the shipped libraries out of the way and then softlink into the QT libraries which exist in /usr/lib. Google Earth now looks wonderful. I'm going to come up with settings that work well with remote display and Compiz and push this all out to users in the coming weeks.
