Sorry for non giving any live signal for a while, I
was on a trip.
I've just read the whole xft printing problems. I've
not dig into the problem, but printing with the xft
build was working when I left it, but that was before
the unification of units by thomas, so maybe that
stopped working there.
I don't know where come the problems with embedding
fonts. Embedding fonts (TT & PS) was also working
when I last touched it.
The problem about the status bar not working with
double buffering is there because xft calls (as any
non gdk primitives) don't get diverted to the double
buffer, so all the things that we draw in a double
buffered GdkWindow using non gdk calls are covered by
the double buffer when gdk copies it on the GdkWindow
at the end of the expose event (you can see it that's
the problem with the status bar if it flicker a very
little bit before it disappears).
We should instead draw the text to the GdkDrawable
that's being used by gdk to do the double buffer (you
can get the real GdkDrawable using
Hope that it helps,
