The general font settings are in "System -> Preferences -> Appearance -> Fonts".

Also, if you think that the fonts aren't rendered correctly, click at "Details" at the lower left of those tab, and tinker with those settings a bit.

As for good fonts, personally, I use the "Droid" set, package "ttf-droid", it's in the official repos.

Thanks for reply mate

But I already have droid package and I tried everything from fonts settings but nothing has changed, not sure if it has something to with script or java or flash..... but font error is highly likely which I am not able to figure out..

any other suggestion? also as newly installed ubuntu what are most basic packages required for high graphic performance?
