d.text.freetype works for me. GRASS 6.1 CVS 2005/12/10 snapshot +
this new gism2, Mac OS X 10.4.4, all my own builds (ie my Graphics
Libs and GIS Libs and GRASS) - I don't use Lorenzo's binaries. And I
build for 10.4 separately from 10.3 (that is, GCC 4 Tiger/GCC 3.3
But I didn't rebuild GRASS to use TclTk Aqua, it's still using a Unix
TclTk build. Maybe that would make a difference?
This is my first look at gism2, I've been meaning to look at it.
Cool. One thing that would be nice, maybe it's been discussed - draw
layers in the canvas one at a time. Especially on a large map with
many layers, it would be good to see map drawing progress, and not
just a progress bar. It might be done with a transparent PNG for
each new layer, combined with the previous composite? That would
open the possibility of interrupting the redraw as well (also nice
for a large/complex map).
