Enabling ClearText with rdesktop

I like to enable ClearText (font smoothing) on Windows. However, when using a VM, there is no console, and the setting doesn’t persist across the remote desktop sessions. When connecting from Linux, I use rdesktop for remoting into Windows VMs. I learned about the following rdesktop argument, which enables the ClearType setting for the session:

rdesktop -x 0x80 <computer_name> (connecting on LAN, enable ClearType)

I found this detail on this awesome post.
