Please describe the problem:
The only way to enable the autohinter is to add text to ~/.fonts.  Some people prefer it off, others on, so it should be easily toggable via the fonts properties GUI.

Related Launchpad bugs: "ontconfig don't use autohinter as default" "Desktop UI for enabling autohinting?"
