How to Improve Font Rendering

If the fonts appear blocky/pixelated changing a script will improve the rendering - this applies to Puppy 5.28.

Edit the file /etc/fonts/local.config to include the following code

<?xml version="1.0"?>
<!DOCTYPE fontconfig SYSTEM "fonts.dtd">
<!-- /etc/fonts/local.conf file for local customizations -->
<!--  Enable sub-pixel rendering -->
   <match target="font">
	  <test qual="all" name="rgba">
	  <edit name="rgba" mode="assign"><const>rgb</const></edit>

<!-- suggested by 'upnorth'
 Reject bitmap fonts -->
	 <patelt name="scalable"><bool>false</bool></patelt>

Often this is just case of removing two comment tags (<!-- -->)
