hi everyone,
i've just upgraded from 10.10 beta to 10.10 rc but i don't like the new font look. can anyone tell me what are the default font settings for 10.04, because i would like to change back.

i've tried by changing everything to sans, but it doesn't seem right...

sans are default in 10.04. did you reboot or logout?

Just wanted to add my two cents. I also don't like Ubuntu's new Font.

It's spindly and hard to read - esp. on my 1080p laptop. Isaas, I changed the fonts by going to systems --> preferences --> Appearance Preferences --> (Fonts Tab). Once there, I changed my Application font to Britannica Unicode Sans Roman. Don't know if you would like that but it certainly is far more readable than Ubuntu's font.

I've noticed though, that Firefox doesn't render web page fonts as well as it used to. I have no clue why this is the case. I did install the proprietary ATI 3D Graphics accelerator - which was buggy under 10.04.
