I'm new to ubuntu and would like to know:
(1) what font I shoud use/install to get rid of the ugly font in firefox?
I find the text unbarable in ubuntu. In XP, using firefox, the text is clean and readable. With ubuntu i find the text on the net to be very bad. It is OK on the desktop.
(2) I find ubuntu 8.04 (I have used no other version) somewhat slow compared to XP. XP is extremely fast. Ubuntu feels slow and heavy.
Are there tweaks to speed up ubuntu?
I have a core2duo t7500 and NVIDIA 8600.
Nvidia driver via envy.
Why is this and how can I fix it?
