i have changed my monitor from crt to lcd and find the fonts to be a little out of focus,
so far i have achieved native resolution of 1280x1024 in gnome which is great! i have configured grub by adding the vga=xxx appropraite for native resolution of my monitor which is great !.........but herein lay the problem, everything is so small and stuck up in the left corner , so small that i cant read it very well.
how do i increase the font sizes at cmd prompt without changing the resolution ? dare i say ........in windows i would increase the DPI , how do i achieve this in centos ?
I was wondering how to change the xterm font size and may be the font itself. Also we go to tty1 when we press Ctrl+Alt+f1 , f3 and so on. Is there any way I can change that too and maybe change the colour of the font and the size of it. I did change the resolution once in ubuntu with startup manager. I'm using fedora 14.
I am using ubuntu lucid.as a desktop and don't run a server. The editor I use is vim so increasing font by edit > profile preferences. What I need to know is how to increase the size in console ie. when I use Ctrl +Alt + F1 to F6. On running xrandr I get this :
I know that,the graphical user interface ( using X windows , I think ) sits on top of the base system ie F1 to F6. In the Fs , xrandr replies "Can't open display ". The question is am I right in thinking that "gui" is totally independant of the base ( is that the correct word ?). I have read that messing about with resolution can wreck a monitor ( I'm using a laptop) , is there a safe way to proceed?
From inside my bash script, is there a way to increase my Xdialog default font size? If not, is there any other way to do it? I found a commercial program using Xdialog with instructions on increasing the font size, but they did not say how they did it. But, it does mean it can be done: [URL]
I installed Ubuntu on my Netbook. I like it to use the Terminals. I don't mean the "GUI-Terminal-Emulators", I mean those I can open with "Alt+FX". There the font size is to big, so I changed it with "dpkg-reconfigure console-setup". It worked, but after restart the font were "reseted" and big. Is there a way to permanently change the font size?
I installed "Ubuntu 10.04 LTS - the Lucid Lynx" Amd_64 version on my dell vostro 1015. My screen resoultion is set to 1366*768(16.9) by default because the font size on web pages looks too small. I am not able to understand if it is font size too small or is it a resolution set too high. I am trying to fix this because I find very difficult to read web pages specifically. I tried to zoom in on firefox, but that is not permanent solution.
I want to decrease my screen resolution. I opened drop down and I find following:
None of the above resolution suits my laptop. The monitor type identified by Ubuntu says Laptop Monitor.
I've been searching and have been unable to find a solution. My current theme is rather dark, for reading at night, etc. And with inactive windows on the screen, the border changes to white from black and makes it difficult on the eyes.
Is there a way to change this inactive color to another, such as black or dark gray?
I want to set my editor's font as Monaco-11, but it has no anti-aliasing effect. And when I set it to Monaco-12, anti-aliasing effect works. How can I make it also work for Monaco-11? I'm using Ubuntu 9.10
So I install a font, don't like it, then uninstall it. Simple enough, but when I say a font, I mean the 465 free true type fonts by Brian Kent. For some reason I thought it had said 45 and thought that font options would be nice. Of course, hardly any of the fonts were worth using, so I uninstalled them. Yet, their names still show up in the list of fonts in all programs that use a font list. There are 465 names that don't have a font associated with them, and it's driving me nuts.
I have asked for a video capturing software before but recommend a GOOD screen recorder where you can select the window/window size the axis and also a good editing software which will render/export into FULL 720p HD
i'm not sure for using the correct channel here but i hope someone out there can answer my little questions. 1st in older version i was able to change the settings of the terminal look as the font color, background color and so on. I was also able to define a default window size of a new terminal window. But since after upgrading to to the first release this year and a complete new installation of the current release Maverick i do not find this option anymore. Is there a way how to set up the terminal default window size?
Recently I installed some of the MS Office 2007 fonts onto my Ubuntu 10.10 machine in order to use them. Unfortunately, a few of them look really blocky at font sizes smaller than 16 pt. The two i'm having issues with are Calibri and Cambria. I don't seem to have this issue with any other set of fonts. Here is a screenshot of the issue in question. I remember having this same issue on 10.04, before I upgraded, if it means anything.
By the way, I took the fonts from a windows machine, on which the fonts were working properly.
I lastly used KDE (version 1.x ). Now I'm using KDE 3.5 for several weeks and one thing really annoys me: there are a lot of programs that don't remember their last window position and/or size. They always default to a specific location/size when I close and open them again. I give you some examples:
Program that doesn't remember anything: - Konqueror
Program that remembers window size, but not position: - KMail
Nice Program that remembers everything: - Basket Note Pads
Is there a way to tell these programs to remember their position/size?And a second question about konqueror: Can I tell konqueror to remember the view mode? I prefer MultiColumn view, but it always defaults to Icon view.
I was trying to adjust my gnome-terminal actually. Opened up Gnome-terminal and went to Edit > Profile Preferences > General Tab.In the General Tab there is a font option. Tried to change font-sizes but saw there is only 18, 20 and other sizes but no 19. I also saw similar things in many other fonts. To investigate further I tried same and similar fonts in Gedit as well i.e. go to Gedit > Edit > Preferences > Font and Colors and clicked on Editor Font and cycled through almost all the fonts that are on my system. I didn't see it either of them to give an option of 19. In fact saw quite a few odd sizes missing.So is this a short-coming in GNOME or something else. Is it something to do with the resolution perhaps - the current resolution is fixed at 1024*768 .
This is an interaction between OOo and the font package on Ubuntu, so I have searched both sets of forums fruitlessly. In Open Office when I go to select font characteristics for the so-called MS fonts (Arial for example) instead of the menu showing Bold and Italic, it shows "Negreta" and "Cursiva".
I'm a student in a linux class and we just installed fedora. so far it's nice except that the work we do is in the CLI which I can barely see because it's so small on the screen! I've been squinting at the screen for a little while now but it's just proving to give me more of a headache and hurt my eyes than anything. Anyone know how to change the font size so that I can actually see the work I'm doing?
I'm running OpenSUSE 11.2 on my Acer Aspire One with a 9 inch LCD. I have configured the monitor in Sax2 to reflect the size and 1024x600 resolution, and as a result the desktop fonts are all sized correctly.
However, the fonts on the KDM log-in screen are too large, and I'd like to reduce them if possible. Looking in the KDE Control Center, I tried using the Login Manager utility to adjust the KDM theme, but any changes I made seemed to have no effect i.e. changing the font size, or even the overall theme itself, still resulted in KDM using the default green OpenSUSE theme with large fonts.
Does anyone know, therefore, how to adjust the KDM font size or DPI in OpenSUSE 11.2?
I'm running OpenSuSE 11.3, upgraded from 11.1, with the Nvidia video driver. The font size for Yast, Firefox, and several other things is too small. I've tried changing it using the Appearance section of Personal Settings. That changes the font size in some contexts such as the window titles and task manager, but not in all contexts. In Firefox I've tried something similar, but it doesn't affect the font used in the tabs, function bar on the top, etc. The font in those parts of Firefox is the same as the one in Yast. So there's some other font setting around, but I haven't been able to find it. I've tried Google and SDB, but have no success searching there.
