font hinting Subpixel smoothing on slight not full
Using Ubuntu 10.04.
My fonts looked different today. Only slightly different. So I went into the appearance preferences to try to figure it out.
In, Systems->Preferences->Appearance, click the "Fonts" tab and for "Rendering" select "Subpixel smoothing (LCDs)". Then click "Details". For hinting I choose "Full". Then I close the "Font Rendering Details" dialog box. And close the "Appearance Preferences" dialog box.
My problem is that my system won't keep my "Subpixel smoothing (LCDs)" font Hinting setting on "Full". It keeps changing it back to "Slight". When I go back into the settings one thing I notice that you can see in the picture is that for "Rendering" they all have the minus sign. Then when I re-click on "Subpixel smoothing (LCDs)" it shows up as "slight".
I can't figure out how to get it to stay on "Full".
Re: font hinting Subpixel smoothing on slight not full
It happened AFAIK because I installed extra desktop environments like Xubuntu and Kubuntu on top of my Ubuntu install.
Ubuntu didn't like that. So, I reinstalled Ubuntu and the problem is no longer a problem.
