Hardware :: Anti Aliasing - Graphics Not Appearing Smooth

Jul 2, 2010

I have a pc in my office. This pc got a Asus mother board. There is a strange issue with graphics on that pc. Anything which I draw using GIMP or Inkscape is not smooth. If I open that file on other system and just save that with different name, it become smooth. Earlier I thought its something related to graphic card. So I purchased a new graphic card (nVidia) but still problem is same. I also tried different OS (including Windows XP as system is on dual boot mode) but no luck. I have attached 2 files. One is saved on that PC and another is from the same file, but I opened that file on second pc and saved that again.

Ubuntu :: Anti Aliasing Not All The Way Off?

Sep 9, 2010

Anti aliasing is off in the top windows. This is what I want everywhere. Firefox and the help application (lower windows) still anti-alias. I DO NOT want that. How do I turn the anti-aliasing COMPLETELY off. System->Preferences->Appearance->Fonts did not do it.

Code: sudo dpkg-reconfigure fontconfig did not do it either.

Ubuntu :: Wine Fonts Smoother With Anti-aliasing?

Feb 23, 2010

I've got a Wine question.. I've searched around for this.. but have only found how to make wine fonts smoother with anti-aliasing.

But my problem is that Images, when they are resized in Wine applications they won't get resized smoothly, the images gets pixly and does not look good at all.. Good example of this is Spotify.

Software :: How To Prevent GIMP From Anti Aliasing Shapes

Jul 7, 2011

For example, if I fill in a circle with black (using the ellipse tool), then fill the surrounding with another color (a dark color) there will be a nearly white outline of the circle. I don't want there to be an outline. The whole canvas should be ALL black.

Debian Multimedia :: Anti Aliasing Not Working ATI Radeon 4850

Feb 5, 2011

I am currently running Linux Mint Debian Edition (based on Debian Testing). I have installed an ATI Radeon 4850 w/ 1GB RAM. I am using FGLRX, and Catalyst Control Center seems to be working. However, even though I have selected "Override Application Settings" in CCC, I get no AA whether it be during gaming (Urban Terror) or in Compiz (3D Cube).

General :: Browser Fonts Have Messed Up Anti Aliasing In Ubuntu 10.04 / Fix This?

Jun 30, 2010

After years of developing on Windows (.NET) I kept hearing about all these new kids on the block using Ruby and Python. Since I wanted to try them I thought it would be nice to check out Linux at the same time. I heard a lot about Ubuntu so I am running Ubuntu 10.04 with VMware.

Everything worked supprisingly well and I didn't have any big problems until I tried browsing some webpages with Ubuntu. It feels like I am browsing the web without my glasses or that I am back on my old CRT monitor.

Example 1

This is Windows Chrome vs Ubuntu Chrome. As you can see the Linux version is a little more blurry and the AA isn't that crisp. I did search Google a bit and found a lot of posts that said to edit the fonts.conf file but that doesn't seem to change anything. I also tried changing the rendering modes (Monochrome, Best shapes, Best contrast and Subpixel smoothing) but that didn't help either.

Since I might be doing some web development with Linux in the future it's fairly important to me that the fonts look the same as in Windows.

Example 2

I'm not sure that this example has anything to do with AA - it seems that the font is just smaller on Linux.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: GIMP Scale Image Without Anti-aliasing?

Jul 17, 2010

I want to make an 8-bit looking image that has very large pixels. My solution was to make a 50x50 image, zoom in, draw it with the 1x1 pixel pencil tool, and then scale it to whatever size i want.Everything went well except, when i try to scale it the anti-aliasing kicks in and blurs everything. Is there a way that i can disable anti-aliasing?

Debian Multimedia :: OpenOffice Font Anti Aliasing Broken After Upgrade To Lenny

Sep 14, 2010

I'm trying to upgrade a headless terminal server like box from Etch to Lenny. Users log in to this box using a GoGlobal client and use applications such as OpenOffice and Iceweasel. Because of the ended support for Etch we want to upgrade this machine to Debian Lenny as soon as possible and in order to save time we decided to dist-upgrade instead of installing a new machine. I've done this upgrade in a test environment and everything is working as expected except for OpenOffice, which seems broken after the upgrade:

The problem seems to be caused by the anti aliasing features of OpenOffice and disabling these features in the options panel (Extra -> Options -> OpenOffice.org View -> Screen font anti aliasing) fixes the UI somewhat:

However, as can be seen in the last screenshot, disabling anti aliasing makes the whole thing look terrible. I've searches the net for solutions such as this one but so far I've not been able to fix this. Is there anyone who can point me towards what has changed in the way fonts are rendered since Lenny and what might cause this breakage for OpenOffice? Other applications such as Iceweasel work perfectly and look better then before.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Minimum Graphics Requ'd For Smooth MTS (1080-50p) Video Playback?

May 21, 2011

I got a Geforce 8400GS 512MB with a 2.8 Ghz quad core system on Ubuntu 10.04 64 bit. MTS videos from my camcorder, which are AVCHD 28 mbit encoded don't play back smoothly using the nvidia proprietary driver (195.36.24). I compared with Windows XP, and concluded that it must be my not terribly high powered graphics card (silent, w/o fan) that must be too weak - the rest of the system is really quite fast. The software isn't really the issue either, I don't think, especially since the latest VLC under Windows XP doesn't do it, either.

Do people have experience what kind of a graphics can can power such video to play back smoothly? I am considering a 1 GB Asus Geforce GT520 with 1GB DDR3 (the 8400 has DDR2) - since it is also silent and I have a compact HTPC (a Shuttle), so shouldn't run too hot and I don't like loud fan noise.

I'm not sure if it is the larger and faster graphics RAM, or a fast graphics CPU (GT520 has 810 Ghz versus 8400GS has 500 Mhz) that will make the difference...

Ubuntu :: Graphics / GUI 10.04 - Skin Flickered Black / Green A Few Times Then White Vertical Lines Started Appearing Down From The Top Of The Screen

Aug 3, 2010

Ever since the problem with Flash started up a few days ago, (Videos Lagging/jumpy/jerky horridly.) I decided to finally switch from 9.10 to 10.04...all was going well until a few minutes ago while I was browsing themes and running Konversation, the skin flickered black/green a few times then white vertical lines started appearing down from the top of the screen to about the middle, (Almost looked like the teeth on a haircomb). I had to then shutdown and restart. What id like to know is are the two connected (My earlier flash problem and this) or how I can fix it, so far it hasn't happened again but I'm starting to worry, I've never had problems with Ubuntu until a few weeks ago.

Fedora :: Linux Fedora Anti-Spam & Anti-Virus Server Solution Needed

Apr 25, 2010

I want to setup a Linux Fedora based Anti-Virus & Anti-Spam Server on my LAN. I have more than 60 Windows users with Proxy Squid running on LAN. Our Email server is hosted on the Internet. Because of virus/spam generate problem, emails are worst affected & the users have a lot of problem on Email, as the outlook gives error. It happens when a PC generates Spam & our IP gets blocked by the ISP for some time. Thats why I want to setup an Anti VIRUS/SPAM Firewall on my LAN (before the Squid), so these spams do not go past the Internet Gateway.Hope u guys understand my problem & suggest some useful links, software & documentations.

Ubuntu Networking :: No Documentation For IP Aliasing?

Apr 5, 2010

I've been looking for documentation on the "Ubuntu way" of configuring IP alias addresses, especially in Ubuntu Server (servers being where IP alias addresses would tend to be used). I cannot find any documentation. It seems NetworkManager also runs on the server, and has no means to do IP alias addresses. I shut it down because it interferes with manually configured aliases (takes them back out or sometimes worse). But I am just wondering why all this is. I've had to modify startup/init scripts to get the aliasing working. That's not a problem for me since I have worked in Unix at that level for so long. But I would think there would be some standard way for Ubuntu Server (or any other) to do this. I just can't seem to find it.

Software :: Mc 4.7.0 - Smooth Scrolling?

Nov 12, 2010

I'm using Midnight Commander 4.7.0 on Ubuntu 10.04.1, and would like to know if there's a way to change the default behavior when scrolling up/down using the arrow keys: By default, when reaching the last item, MC scrolls down one half-block, which I find very annoying. Is it possible to reconfigure MC to simply down one item? Google didn't return much on this.

Ubuntu :: Mouse - Very Jumpy/not Smooth ?

May 20, 2010

I installed 10.04 LTS yesterday on a desktop. I have a problem with the mouse, it's very jumpy/not smooth. I can move it across the screen and it will jump up and down and left to right. Jittery I guess you would say. I've googled this and seen several people with the issue but no one has a rock solid solution. Does anyone here have any suggestions? I know it isn't the mouse, I've tried a different one, and it reacts the same on any surface.

Ubuntu :: Smooth Image Scaling In FF3?

Oct 24, 2010

i face problem with Firefox 3.6.11: smooth image scaling doesn't work. When i zoom in websites (ctrl +), images are not anti aliased, but appear pixelated, which is very ugly.

What I found out about so far, this seems not to be a FF problem (FF3 should support smooth image scaling), but a problem with the video driver, who tells X it could do smooth image scaling automatically but it cant. There is also a "bug" fix for the FF:

launchpad.net/~firefox-smooth-scaling/+archive/ppa I putted this to my package sources and made a system update. But smooth image scaling still doesn't work

Software :: How To Disable KDE Smooth Effects

Oct 8, 2010

When I use Qt programs, I have lots of smooth effects like fading, tints moving, etc... How do I disable them? I guess it's "systemsettings" app that does this config, but I couldn't find right option. I don't wanna change the look of KDE programs, I just want to make effects instant, not smooth. Let everything else stay the same.

Fedora :: Ubuntu's Smooth LCD Fonts In 11 For Dummies?

Jun 25, 2009

Compare Fedora's default fonts with Ubuntu's here and here. This is basically a simple "cheat" version for F11 of Breb's original thread, that thread has links to some excellent resources and info if you want to really understand what's going on.

UPDATE: directfb and xcb-util packages must be installed, check by doing: 'yum install directfb xcb-util' 0. In your home directory create a file named .Xresources (don't forget the dot) with this line:


Xft.lcdfilter: lcddefault

1. Now, as root, create a directory for the libs that we will replace, and backup the current libs:


su -
mkdir -p ufonts/fedora
cd ufonts
cp -a /usr/lib/lib{cairo,freetype,pixman,Xft}* fedora/
(For x86_64, replace /usr/lib/ by /usr/lib64/ in the above and everywhere below)

2. Extract the required ubuntu libs from these debian packages, libcairo2, libfreetype6, libxft2, libpixman-1-0 or just unpack one of these tarballs 32bit libs, 64bit libs so that you have these libs in ufonts/ (64bit sizes will be larger):


$ ls -l
drwxrwxr-x. 2 user user 4096 2009-06-25 20:37 fedora
