varnold Posted September 29, 2014 Report Share Posted September 29, 2014 Hi guys, old-time Gentoo user from version 1.2 circa 2002.The original Gentoo was so smooth and polished up until Daniel left, even the forums back then had really cool, well'mannered guys hanging out helping each other. It was a wonderful place to be.There were some grievances I had with the older Gentoo though ! One was the fact that I had to configure X, that was always a pain, and the other was messing around with fonts. I remember getting beautiful fonts by default when Daniel was still heading Gentoo, but not after he left.I'm at the stage where I have neither the time nor the inclination to fanny around with such things. I used to spend endless amounts of time getting WindowMaker configured the way I wanted, I was such a pain.These days, I find Gnome-Shell a wonderful successor as my Desktop Environment; font configuration is probably being handled by it.Could someone clarify if things have improved ? Would I still have to setup X (or is it Wayland now), handle font configuration etc ? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
