    I'm following the guide on the first post of this guide, and I'm trying with tahoma. I get the following questions when I run "sudo dpkg-reconfigure fontconfig":

    1. How should fonts be tuned for the screen?
    Native
    Authohinter
    None

    2. Enable subpixel rendering of text?
    Automatic
    Always
    Never

    3. Enable bitmapped fonts by default?
    yes
    No

    What shall I answer on these questions? I have an IBM T41.

    This works just fine with antialiasing off at small font sizes in all applications, except in Firefox where the fonts are always antialiased. Any idea?

    Re: HOWTO: Hoary ClearType-like fonts

    is there any way to completely undo the installation of this fix so your system is as it was prior to the changes?

    i have restored my old .fonts.conf file, but am not sure what else to do. i am having trouble with some websites (using dapper).

    u.

    EDIT: Did one of the commands change the default serif on firefox? because on one site i visit the serif is now extremely difficult to read.

    EDIT: I found my solution. I just uninstalled the ms fonts through synaptic and firefox shows my selected fonts and not the ms versions... (didn't know it did that). i now have the fix from this thread on my desktop pc, and no mstt fonts on the laptop! cheers.
