Hi,

In Ubuntu, the font on my screen is very small, as if (in windows) my screen resolution is set very high. It's hard to read that way, how can I change it to be a bit bigger?

Thanks,

Chris

System -> Preferences -> Appearance

You can change the size and the font in the fonts tab

Excellent, thanks! My first Linux success story!

I've read some where that installing the ubuntu-restricted-extras package for playing media also installs non free fonts as well:

Yes, it does, but the fonts can be installed directly as well in case you don't want all the stuff that comes in the restricted.-extras -package.

(for example I never use that package as it installs Acrobat Reader which must be the worst PDF reader ever created.. :D)
