    Re: HOWTO: Hoary ClearType-like fonts

    I can't start Ubuntu after adding this line:
    # DisplaySize 270 203 # 1024x768 96dpi
    # DisplaySize 338 254 # 1280x960 96dpi
    DisplaySize 338 270 1280x1024 96dpi
    # DisplaySize 370 277 # 1400x1050 96dpi
    # DisplaySize 423 370 # 1600x1400 96dpi

    Re: HOWTO: Hoary ClearType-like fonts

    comment the uncommented line and /etc/init.d/gdm restart

    PS: I LOVE how Windows works in the fonts, is really nice. The ubuntu default fonts are really ugly, blurred, some webpages have a very small fonts and other too large, etc. I really wanna see this improved in next ubuntu/kubuntu releases.

    For some strange reason i had to reboot my system for the DisplaySize switch to take effect (restarting the X session didn't work).

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.

    EDIT:
    I did find out how to get all of my custom Windows fonts in my Ubuntu installation.

    Look here:

    And they look great, BTW. And I now have my favorite Tahoma Font as my system font. Life is good.
    If at first you don't succeed - just buy the company and tell them to make the one you want.

    Re: HOWTO: Hoary ClearType-like fonts

    I can't get the antialiasing to work. I now have nice clean nonaliased window fonts, also websites look a lot better, but when they use a bigger type (for titles etc.) I see ugly rough corners. In the tutorial they edited the ~/.fonts.conf file, but I don't see aliased rendering for the bigger cases Where can i edit this?

    Update: Got the solution from a guy from gathering.tweakers.net

    He suggested to paste the following code in /etc/fonts/local.conf. As you can see there are a few differences compared to the xml-code in the how-to provided here.

    XML-code tweakers.net:
    Code:
    <match target="pattern">
                    <test qual="any" name="size" compare="less_eq">
                            <int>12</int>
                    </test>
                    <edit name="antialias" mode="assign"><bool>false</bool></edit>
            </match>
    XML-code this how-to thread:
    Code:
    <match target="font">
     <test compare="more" name="pixelsize" qual="any">
      <double>0</double>
     </test>
     <test compare="less" name="pixelsize" qual="any">
      <double>15</double>
     </test>
     <edit mode="assign" name="antialias">
      <bool>false</bool>
     </edit>
    </match>

    Thanks a lot for this How-to. Followed intusing Dapper and worked great. The default font settings in Ubuntu were giving me a headache!

    Re: HOWTO: Hoary ClearType-like fonts

    I was having the same problem. I thought I could simply log out and back in again to reset the X server and no matter what I changed the values to in xorg.conf I couldn't get the DPI to change.

    Turns out I had to Ctrl-Alt-Backspace to reset the server. Then I saw things change. If you haven't already give that a shot.

    You need to put a # before 1280x1024.

    I have all the fonts working and Tahoma copied. However I am having one issue. I open the terminal and the fonts look all cramped or rendered very wierd.
