    Worked on my Kubuntu installation too. Many thanks! My Ubuntu came this way, and I loved the fonts. I'm so glad to get Kubuntu to use them. Now I don't have any reason to go back.

    It does look better, but I would strongly encourage all LCD users (including all notebooks users) to select

    System->Preferences->Font

    and select "Subpixel smoothing (LCD)" before making this change.

    I just have to agree. On Feisty this is just enough.... on gutsy, there is no need... everything looks so cool
    Humillity is not a "Status"...
    It's a "Gift"!!!

    For some reason, my Gutsy install is deleting .fonts.conf. I had it in my home directory when I upgraded, and it deleted it. I tried replacing the file, and again, it was deleted. Yes, I had view hidden files enabled. Anyone know why it is doing this?

    Hi all,

    I screwed up my Gutsy install and despite spending 20 min with dpkg-reconfigure -a the fonts in my Firefox are now skinny-scrawly (UGLY)...

    How can I reset the fonts system-wide? Thanks for advice.

    UPDATE: I installed msttcorefonts and it partially solved the Firefox in-screen ugly fonts problem... some are still showing up as skinny-scrawly fonts, while some others are OK... how can I reset the Firefox fonts to the default Gutsy ones?
