So, I finally got Radeon X800 XT 256 for my G5, works great!
So now, I feel I am pushing some limits but here goes.
So I have two 32" monitors, i connected them, and they just duplicate displays, In reading it seems I can't do dual monitors off a single card at this time? (extended display). So I was kind of miffed having to use a single screen.
So, for the heck of it, I plugged the machine into my HP 34c (3440x1440 rez)
Amazingly, it came up at the proper res, all the icons and images look great!
Now the bad side, the fonts just don't display correctly, they almost look a bit hieroglyphic..
Is there something I can do? or am i missing? or is this just a no-go/pipe dream? :)
Icon fonts can be changed from Ambient Settings -> Icon Display -> Text Rendering.
Do you mean by "fixed fonts" fixed width fonts or something else? Fixed width fonts can be both bitmap and scalable (freetype) fonts, and maybe you should check if it's rather bitmap vs scalable issue?
I blew away the install and went back to the single monitor for now. But, if I recall, the ONLY font that displayed corrected was the Topaz 8/9 PT one. But it wouldn't take the changes to the text on the desktop icons, or folders.
Oddly enough the Prefs panel displayed fine no matter what was selected.
I"ll rebuild it again, and send pictures of the settings and what results I see.
To disable antialiasing, simply open Font system settings and set Anti-Aliasing cycle to None, save and reboot. My guess is that hardware acceleration fails on such high resolutions with your graphics card and that causes the issue.
