    The path is ~/ or /home/username. Type that into the file browser path and you should be in your home directory =)

    The preferred way to do this on gutsy is:
    Code:
    sudo ln -sf /etc/fonts/conf.avail/10-autohint.conf /etc/fonts/conf.d/

    I did this, and it made things look weird (I want it back). I did the gusty method a few posts up. Please help! PM me instead of post also.

    Open up your /etc/fonts/conf.d/ file. Find and delete below section, save the file and restart X.

    Code:
    <?xml version="1.0"?>
    <!DOCTYPE fontconfig SYSTEM "fonts.dtd">
    <!-- debian/autohint.conf -->
    <fontconfig>
    <!--  Use the Autohinter --> 
      <match target="font">
        <edit name="autohint" mode="assign"><bool>true</bool></edit>
      </match>
    </fontconfig>
    life is short, but sweet for certain...

    Will this make the fonts look better on Hardy too? My fonts seem okay, but I'm not quite drooling.
