How to Turn on Anti-Aliasing in GeekTool

To make anti-aliasing work for fonts in GeekTool 3, you must select the text box, in the GT Properties window click, under Styles, the "Click here to set font & color ..." button, and activate font shadow from within Apple's font window (last button on the right).

How to Turn on Anti-Aliasing in GeekTool
Authored by: phillymjs on May 11, '11 11:28:11AM

When I first upgraded to GeekTool 3, I missed the "Drop Shadow" checkbox that GeekTool 2 offered. I actually contacted the developer to ask if it was going to be added back to version 3, and he directed me to OS X's built in font dialog. For some reason mine had always opened by default at a size where it was too narrow to show the shadow options. I never knew they were there, all I had ever were the Underline, Strikethrough, Text Color and Document Color options.

I sure felt like a n00b that day.
