Ubuntu :: Firefox Fonts Changed When Installing Wine / Get Back?
Mar 24, 2011
I use Ubuntu 10.04. I'm not sure what other info is relevant, Gnome, I suppose.
Yesterday I installed wine-1.2 (using Synaptic), in order to be able to build programs for Windows. This in itself seemingly succeeded, but as a result of the installation, fonts in Firefox changed (one can say immediately - when the installation was done, the fonts had changed).
For example, in this forum, the non-monospaced font changed in some way I can't put my finger on. Right now, posts feel less readable, but getting used to it may just be a question of time.
Some other pages (in existing tabs, and when looking them up again) changed the font size, some increased the size, some decreased it. This can be fixed by using Ctrl-+ or Ctrl-- quite easily, but <whine> I would like these kind of changes not to happen at all </whine>.
I uninstalled wine (not removed completely - I don't know what the difference is), but this didn't undo the font change.
The font settings within Firefox (Preferences) don't seem to have been changed.
The point of this post is to ask what may have happened, where such dependencies between fonts are stored, and how to undo the change, in case I'd like to.
I installed KDE on my Ubuntu laptop and then got rid of it. I used puregnome which worked but I still have weird fonts in Firefox. I tried adjusting the preferences in Firefox but nothing works. How can I revert it back?I did a fresh install (but kept my home directory) and it made no change. I also removed the .mozilla folder entirely and uninstalled/reinstalled Firefox. No change.How can I get this back?
Together with Wine some extra fonts were installed (Verdana, etc). Now this fonts are used by firefox to display some websites, and it looks uglier. I'd like to forbid firefox to use this fonts. Is it possible?
I installed Wine on my machine just a few minutes ago and as part of the installation the following packages are also installed: ttf-liberation, ttf-mscorefonts-installer, ttf-symbol-replacement, ttf-tahoma-replacement. These add extra fonts to the system which I'm assuming are required by windows programs running inside Wine. The problem is though that Firefox also seems to be using these fonts because the fonts now look different inside Firefox. Not a huge difference, but you can tell they are different and they just don't look "right" to the eye. They are no longer as pleasing as they were when Firefox was using the default Ubuntu fonts.
Is there a way to keep these fonts for use by Wine, but not allow any other program on Ubuntu to use them?
I'm using Gnome in Ubuntu 9.10I install kde but it's runied my firefox fonts -- ONLY FirefoxI tried to remove Firefox upgrade install everything, but nothing works here's snapshot of my Firefox and fontsat 2010-01-29I don't like this font i want the original one
Yesterday I've installed KDE (kubuntu-desktop) upon Ubuntu to give it a try after a very long time I didn't use KDE. I decided to remove it and go back to GNOME. I removed the KDE packages using this sudo:
The KDE has been removed but some how some of the font changed.
The font settings in the Appearance->Fonts are as they suppose to be (Sans,10...).
I am relatively familiar with Ubuntu, but some time last week it updated and now ALT + Tab temporarily minimizes windows to switch between open apps and shows a little window with icons representing the open apps. I much preferred the old way of just switching between them without minimizing and the more graphically appealing (I guess to some) window. I have checked Keyboard Shortcuts and it seems that I no longer have that my original option available, is there another way to select that option, or add it back to the keyboard shortcuts or am I just stuck with it unless I decide to back up to a previous release? Hope this made sense, and I won't be able to try any suggestions until tomorrow so please feel free to throw as many suggestions as you want to me and I will try them all one by one tomorrow morning.
That's a picture of my ubuntu 9.1 64bit login screen. The background image I changed myself months after this problem started, so I'm sure that has nothing to do with it. What I DID do that caused this problem was follow the openoffice dark theme fix on this page:[URL]
BACKGROUND: I installed a dark theme that made the openoffice word page black, so I had to find a fix for it on the page above. I'm not using the theme anymore, but it was "Slickness black" on gnomelooks.
In case someone didn't see a problem with the orginal login screen, the section where you click the username and enter your password should look like this:
Also incase anyone was going to ask, my login DID look like the second picture at one point (before the openoffice fix) I just removed openoffice completely and reinstalled it so that isn't the solution.
I've just installed Debian 8.2 KDE 64bit, installed wine, and found that a 32-bit Windows program (Agent newsreader) could not see the linux system fonts. (This worked fine on Kubuntu 14.04)
Since this is the first time that I've installed Debian, I'm not sure if I'm missing something obvious or if this is an actual bug.
Steps to reproduce: Fresh install of Debian 8.2 KDE 64bit. apt-get install wine wine wordpad # this is a small word-processor for wine that is supplied with wine menu -> format -> font all linux fonts are visible -- so far so good
Because I want to use a 32bit program, I now have to do this, I understand: dpkg --add-architecture i386 apt-get update apt-get install wine-bin:i386
But after that,if I run "wine wordpad" and look at the fonts, all the linux system fonts are gone. The only fonts visible are the nine that are built into wine (Courier, Fixedsys, Marlett etc..) So installing the i386 wine support seems to have broken something.
I am using wine for a couple of programs, such as spotify and winscp. These used to work great, untill the latest wine update last week. Suddenly, the fonts are scrambled and all wine programs became unusable. I tried to reinstall my programs and to reinstall wine, but to no avail. Here's a screenshot of spotify and wordpad: My installed wine version is 1.2.0-1.fc12 on Fedora Core 12.
I'm kinda new to configuring wine in fedora. My issue is, after I upgraded to fedora 13 and after upgrading wine, my wine configuration gui and all the gui's of all *.exe applications that I was using started having abnormally large gui's with equally large buttons and small fonts. I have attached a screenshot of the wine config GUI as it appears on my screen. My current screen resolution is 1280X1024 and I'm using an integrated ATI chip (ATI Radeon x200 express) with the mesa-dri drivers for display.
I noticed that the fonts for Office 2007 look shabby. I am not taking about anti-aliasing or subpixel hinting; but the general appearance of the applications in not even close to what I am used to in Windows. I'll show what I mean through some screen shots below. The text for different options in the ribbon looks awful. Compare this with windows and the text is clearly legible.
Same goes for the advanced options and other interfaces in Office 2007 under Wine. [URL]... when I type in some text in word, the default font (Calibri - Size 11) at 100% zoom looks awful. Here is the comparison of Linux with Windows7: [URL]... I would like to mention here that I have excellent font rendering in other native Linux applications like Firefox and Open Office. I know that users of Ubuntu and LinuxMint do not face this issue... I have seen many video and screenshots where the installation on Linux looks as good as that on Windows. Additionally, I was going through some of the treads on this forum and I realised this was an OpenSuse centric issue. Subpixel Hinting Packages (Ubuntu Lucid Patches) are now available for 11.3.
I accidentally deleted my /etc/fonts/font-config file and now my fonts are all terribly out of whack in several applications including Synaptic, Chromium, Firefox, etc. How do I reset my fonts back to the Lucid Lynx default?
Had to restart following an extract crash, and upon restarting, much of my theme, including all my icons had changed. Prior to this I was using the Awoken Icon Set. I've gone through and rerun the Awoken Customization script, but no luck. Simply trying to change my theme, and icons in the theme manager doesn't work either.
It seems I had some kind of intrusion and I found 6 files changed its ownership to user 1035 and group 1035, I don't know how but I need to change them back to its original owner (root) because one of them is the ls command and the other is the ifconfig how can I revert them to its original state? I cant do it with chown.
I'm using Ubuntu 9.10 on a i386 laptop and have noticed a signal drop while checking my Administration Log File viewer. I noticed on the file starting :-cfg 80211:Regulatory domain World, then another set of frequencies and below that calling CRDA for country : Am cfg 80211 : Regulatory domain changed to country : Am
My question is-- how do i set it back to Regulatory domain : EU ?code...
I did a bunch of updates, in sid, no issues. But when I rebooted the next day the log in had chanded. No problems logging in, the appearance had changed, and you now have to use the mouse to click on your name to open the password box, where before you could hit enter and get the same results. It is not much, but I have been trying to to restore it back with out much luck. I've played with gdm and gdm3 and a couple of other things but no luck. I did see a update for log in but have not been able to figure out the next step.
Something has changed all my file permissions to read only and when I try and change them back it wont let me. Is there something I can do i Nautilus to correct it?
It even effects the waste basket-all the stuff in there is now read only and when I delete items I get a file operations window, which comes and then goes like its deleted them, but they re still in the waste basket, doesnt show an error message like it does if I try and move any other file.
I just installed xubuntu-desktop on my Ubuntu 9.10 desktop, just to have the option of using xfce ( I did the same with Kubuntu - kde). I have noticed that the Xubuntu splash screen now comes up rather the the Ubuntu default splash screen.
I tried to use Start-Up Manager to changed back to Ubuntu but Xubuntu xsplash screen ( one with the fire flies ) still comes up. Is their any way to change this back to the Ubuntu Splash Screen without the Xubuntu screne coming up at all ??
How do i roll back firefox5beta to firefox4 and keep updating to the latest stable releases w/out upgrading to beta? The only extension that isn't working is FEBE which is incompatible w/ firefox5beta (profile, extension and preference backup). Have to use FEBE beta7 under Firefox4 so I don't think a compatible release for Firefox5beta is going to come out any time soon.
