Pinned topic Fonts on CQ 7.0.1 Eclipse Client

‏2008-01-04T18:12:25Z |
Ever since installing Clearquest 7.0.1 our users have been complaining about the fonts. What I found was that the fonts, particularly of insensitive or "grayed out" fields, look terrible when run from a Solaris client - but not so from a Linux client. What I'm seeing is that the Solaris (5.9 - BTW) client uses stippled fonts where the font is apparently dynamically altered by the X server to write squiggly lines through it to make it appear grayer or sort of crossed out. This looks horrible!

The Linux client, on the other hand, merely changes the color of the font to be more gray. This looks much better.

My question is how do I tell the Solaris client to do what the Linux client is doing and to not use stippled fonts?

Aside from the different color scheme (and the silly fact that I highlighted owner/assignee on the Unix screen capture, note in particular the Priority field. In the Linux screen capture it's very readable. On the Solaris screen capture it's much harder to read (and I've already picked the best font I could find...)

    Andrew, did you ever figure this out? We just upgraded to 7.0.1 and this is our first complaint. I would appreciate it if would let me know if you found a solution.
