Wine with Full antialiasing!!!!!!

After a long search i find out that, if you take from real windows the fonts make a difference!!!

You need ms fonts installed first

sudo apt-get install ttf-mscorefonts-installer

From Nautilus - View -Show Hidden

then go to /home/username/.wine/

edit user.reg

find this "UserPreferenceMask"=hex:10,00,02,80

and replace from this line and above with this

;; All keys relative to \\User\\S-1-5-4

"...replace from this line and above with this"

do you mean to replace the whole file with what you have below?

No from that line and before. Be sure to backup user.reg previously as well beforehand
