    Set up that in your ~/.fonts.conf. See fonts-conf(5).

    Re: HOWTO: Hoary ClearType-like fonts

    hi,

    i followed this guide, and it helped a bit. but the fonts are looking still a bit "dirty" after all... and i dont know how to get this away.

    is there anyone running a similar system with fonts looking really good? can you recommend settings for my system?

    i am running breezy badger on an acer notebook. my screen is 15,4" @ 1280x800, lcd of course. measured about ~329mm X ~270mm (something like that).

    especially in gnome (well, all gtk apps) it looks _really_ dirty. within kde its quite ok, but also not perfect.

    can you tell me the best settings? i am using the msttcore fonts, but mainly for web pages. its not a must have on the desktop itself, bitstream vera sans imho looks good too.

    Re: HOWTO: Hoary ClearType-like fonts

    Hi,
    thanks for the how to. My eyes are less tired than before. the screen now is simply awesome. Yet, I still have one problem.
    I follow exactly each line of the code, but when I came to this part:

    Code:

    sudo dpkg-reconfigure fontconfig

    Select Bytecode interpreter or Subpixel rendering


    I got the blue window,( which I miss so much from my last gentoo distro,) but there is no selection for bytecode or subpixel.
    anyway I select the default values. Then, I tried to change the fonts from the System->Prefrences->fonts. The problem is whenever I try to select tahoma the application crashs. I reboot the system;the error perssists . However, I was able to change fonts to tahoma from firefox .

    Any idea what could be the origine of this error.?

    Note ,I'm using Ubuntu breeze 5.10.

    Thanks.

    Re: HOWTO: Hoary ClearType-like fonts

    On Kubuntu/KDE it can be necessary to adjust the display to 96 dpi.

    To do so,

    sudo nano /etc/kde3/kdm/kdmrc
    and add as last line under [QUOTE][X-:*-Core]

    ServerArgsLocal=-dpi 96
    so it looks like

    [X-:*-Core]
    AllowNullPasswd=true
    AllowShutdown=All
    NoPassEnable=false
    NoPassUsers=
    ServerArgsLocal=-nolisten tcp
    ServerCmd=/usr/X11R6/bin/X
    ServerArgsLocal=-dpi 96
    You can also define standard- and fallback- fonts and fontsizes for KDE here.

    After that, restart KDE and enjoy the look. Thanks for this great HowTo!

    Post Re: HOWTO: Hoary ClearType-like fonts

    I would like to have my Windows fonts on Linux becauae I spent years collecting different font styles that I enjoy using when the need arrises. I don't always need or want the Tahoma font all the time and I don't write business only letters in OOo either. I would just like a way in Ubuntu to use my Windows fonts that I have grown fond of using these last few years.

    Don't get me wrong - I love Linux and I think Ubuntu is the future in personal computing - I just want my Windows fonts I worked so hard to collect. I have over 200 different types of fonts for many different needs.

    OK - I'm done. Don't forget to feed the penguins before you go out tonight.
    If at first you don't succeed - just buy the company and tell them to make the one you want.
