Public bug reported:

Affects: control-center (Ubuntu)
       Severity: Normal
       Priority: (none set)
         Status: Unconfirmed

No idea where this problem is, but on my desktop machine, subpixel font
rendering doesn't work - I have confirmed this using 'xmag' which shows
just greyscale smoothing, whereas on my laptop it shows the smoothing in
lots of different colours.

I'm at a loss to know where to look to track things down, so where might
the problem be ?

ii  fontconfig        2.3.2-1.1ubuntu3  generic font configuration library
ii  gnome-control-cen 2.13.91-0ubuntu3  utilities to configure the GNOME desktop
ii  libcairo2         1.0.2-3ubuntu1    The Cairo 2D vector graphics library
ii  libpango1.0-0     1.11.6-0ubuntu1   Layout and rendering of internationalized text
ii  libgtk2.0-0       2.8.11-1ubuntu2   The GTK+ graphical user interface library
