I tryed it but for me the default font used in apps (FC5) looks better

the new fonts look to 'thin' and are harder to read because of this ..
notes:
1) I am using a TFT with a german locale + no subpixel AA, but greyscale
AA
2) I have recompiled the freetypelib with the bytecode interpretter
enabled

I seem to remember the bytecode interpreter makes DejaVu lighter (and
users of proprietary systems prefer it this way). Can you try it with the
default fedora freetype ?

I've opened the following ticket. Feel free to complete it
https://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=7427

this is marked as wontfix :(
using no bytecode interpreter makes other fonts (the ms stuff used on most webpages looks very(!!) ugly what about a dejavu-fonts-bytecodeinterpreter package with fixed fonts for bytecode interpretter users?
