OpenSUSE :: Font Rendering - KDE & Gnome ?

May 20, 2010

In the next couple of days I'm intending to move to openSuse after a year of vacillating between XP, Vista, 7 and Ubuntu/Mint. One of my main uses for a computer is word processing, but I've noticed font rendering is not at its best in much of Linux. Ubuntu made a great leap as of 9.04, and therefore so did Mint, but whatever was done with the configuration, despite the free and open source factor, hasn't been implemented in many other distros, including I think openSuse. Even Kubuntu is behind - the settings don't seem to alter no matter what is picked in the relevant configuration panel. Several versions of KDE 4 have come and gone without this being seen to.

I am going by live CDs, for example I have 11.2 KDE version which I tried again today and found the same mysterious lack of change as occurs with Kubuntu when the settings are altered. So, has this since been put right with an update or user's tweak, or do people not even know or notice what I'm meaning? Using Open Office's word processor, the fonts aren't correct, often too skinny or spidery, which is what made me hesitant about Linux when I first dipped in, with Ubuntu 8.10.

I've tried the last four openSuse Gnome editions, and with the 'slight' settings for lcd screens the colour fringing is very apparent, as with Ubuntu 8.04 and 8.10. The 'medium' and 'full' settings cause fonts, Roman type especially, to become skinny and spidery.

OpenSUSE :: Ongoing Font With Gnome And 11.4?

Jun 24, 2011

I'm still having an issue with fonts on my Dell E6400 Laptop running opensuse 11.4 and Gnome 2.32.1. The best way to describe it is that it looks like at about 3 places on the screen, there is an invisible horizontal line running right/left, about 2 inches from the top and from the bottom of the display and then about in the middle. When a line of text is "under" this line, the font is corrupted so that it looks broken. If I scroll the text up or down, the "broken" line of text will move above or below the problem area and display perfectly. The next line of text below it will then appear broken.

It isn't related to any specific application. Firefox, LibraOffice, they all do the same thing. I have adjusted font DPI, changed default fonts, messed with subpixel hinting, and even installed the freefonts package. No luck. I know its not the actual monitor because this is a dual-boot laptop and in Windows, the display is perfect.

I've got another older Dell laptop, a D610, with opensuse 11.4 and Gnome 2.32.1 and it doesn't have the problem. So this leads me to believe it is something with the video driver on this particular machine. But I can't figure out in Gnome how to update the video driver.

OpenSUSE :: GNOME - Font In The Terminal Window Appears Very Blocky And Some Of The Letters Run Into Each Other

Feb 23, 2011

I've just installed openSUSE 11.3 on a workstation in my office and am having trouble with the font in the terminal window. It appears very blocky and some of the letters run into each other, regardless of font chosen. Here is a pic of the issue: Has anyone any ideas as to what is going wrong? I've gone through the 'Preferences' on the terminal window but nothing I change helps.

Mar 4, 2010

Things were running fine until GNOME misbehaved;

GNOME failed to load telling me:

OpenSUSE Install :: 11.3 Installation Fail At 90% (step Font Initialization)

Jul 28, 2010

I am installing from the scratch a 11.3 on a PC on which previously 11.1 did run flawlessly. (Athlon 3700 with 3GB ram and Asrock socket 939 mainboard. Graphics is Nvidia. The installation comes every time up to 90% when it arrives at "font initialization). No error message is displayed. The little "cursor wheel" is still turning but else, there is no activity.

DVD from an sha1 checked and MD5 doublechecked download was burned with lowest speed in K3b and verified by the same program post burn, with full success of every verification.
Tried to change DVD reader but does not change the result. Runs speedy up to that step.

OpenSUSE Install :: Extra Large Font During Startup & Shutdown?

Apr 8, 2011

Running Opensuse 11.4 (but had same problem on 11.3). During startup and shutdown, the text messages are displayed using a very large font (characters are > 1 cm high). How can I specify the font and font size it uses ? Presumably it is doing a bad job of detecting the monitor (its a Samsung SyncMaster P2250). Which config file contains a suitable entry, and what is the entry ?

OpenSUSE Install :: Changing Font Color During Boot Screen - Not GRUB - Not KDM

Jan 24, 2010

I am testing some boot splash screens but the ones I like most are darker and therefore the black font color during boot, well, shows on dark grey or black background, so I can't see.

I would like to change the font color of the messages, but not the results (green=DONE, red=FAILED, etc., I don't want to change that, only the messages like "doing fast boot", "Loading CPUfreq", and all the ones loading stuff, mounting, etc.).

Apparently I need to edit /lib/lsb/init-functions?

I found a few examples on google, mostly for debian based and the ones I have seen are far more complex than the very simple one opensuse uses. So I am stuck here. 11.2 version.

Ubuntu :: Firefox 4 Font In Gnome?

Apr 20, 2011

I know this is a minor nuance and it doesn't effect usability at all but it still bugs me. I was using gnome on Ubuntu and decided to install KDE. KDE didn't work properly and so I uninstalled it. But now Firefox still has the KDE font and I can't figure out for the life of me how to change it back. I've had this problem before on another computer and I can't remember if I fixed it on there or not.

Ubuntu :: Font Or Resolution Before Gnome Is Loaded

Sep 10, 2010

when you first start up your computer it is in command line, before the gui has loaded. Just like when you type ctrl alt f1 it goes to a similar screen. in both those cases my fonts are twice the size they normally are. I've used ubuntu and slackware, installed them both on different occasions, and the font in the terminal was always small and looked like what i came to see as normal. but now they are stretched out and twice the size. i am wondering if there is a command or way to change either the font or the resolution or the display settings of the terminal.

Software :: Bad Font In Firefox MENUS (only) In Gnome

Jul 3, 2010

Somehow I manged to mess up my firefox menu fonts.I'm running ubuntu 10.04, updated as of this posting's date.Please see the attached picture of FF (ugly, thin, menu font) alongside OpenOffice (normal menu font) on the same gnome desktop. Interestingly, FF looks little better on the screenshot than it does on my monitor. Something is seriously wrong.

Symptoms:It is only the FF menus that are affected, not the content of the pages that load, or the menu I get when I click on the window title bar (Maximise, Minimise .... Close)
No other applications are affected - all their menus are normal.
No other users are affected - their FF has normal menu fonts. So I am thinking it has to be some file in ~ that is messing this up.

I liked KDE3, but it seems that is history now, and KDE4 is not for me, so I moved to gnome. I am still getting used to it, but it's functional.All was well until I installed the KDE4 desktop, because I thought I'd "give it another try". I logged into KDE4 and ran it under my own username. I managed to open firefox, but that was about it. I logged out because although KDE4 is pretty, it's still useless for my needs.So I went back to gnome, and that's when the problem with FF first appeared.My mouse-pointer cursor has also changed. Instead of a "clockface" spinning when something is waiting, I now have two small circles orbiting an invisible point. No big deal, though it might be relevant.

Ubuntu :: Change The Font Color On The Gnome-panel

Apr 25, 2011

I found an old thread from 2005 on how to change the font color on the gnome-panel.
It worked for all applets on the panel except for the notification area and me-menu where the font remains dark.

How can i force the font to a light color on these two applets?

Also as i used the "clarlooks" theme for controls the status indicator is duplicated:

There is one instance in the me-menu and another in the notification area. How can i remove either? I find that the gnome-panel is a real hassle since 10.04. Not only it is not logically constructed, but it is inconsistent and not customisation friendly.

General :: Turn Off Font-antialiasing Only For Gnome-terminal But Not For Other Applications?

Apr 13, 2010

I'm running GNOME (gnome-session under xmonad). I want to turn off antialiasing (i.e. use monochrome mode) for fonts in gnome-terminal. But I want to retain antialiasing for other applications, like Firefox. Is this possible?

Antialiasing is great and almost necessary for using Firefox or Chrome. But it makes the fonts in gnome-terminal blurry at sizes around 12 or smaller.

Otherwise, I'll just have to use xterm, which seems not to anti-alias its fonts under any circumstances.

Software :: Gnome Terminal Is Showing Options In Micro Font

Apr 20, 2010

I'm very accustomed to using gnome-terminal. Today, out of the blue, the text that shows the things like menu options is extremely small (not readable) (please see screenshot 1).

This is also the case for my favorite text editor gedit (see screenshot 2)

Does anyone know what is causing this and how I can fix it?

I know how to manipulate the size of the text IN the gnome terminal window [from usage: --zoom=ZOOMFACTOR Set the terminal's zoom factor (1.0 = normal size)] but my problem is with the text of the menu options AND --more importantly-- also of the content of gedit text editor.

I currently have Windows XP running on this laptop, but it's very slow.I downloaded openSUSE-11.3-GNOME-LiveCD-i686.iso and sucessfully burned it to a CD.I have the laptop bios set to boot from CD, and it appears to be doing that no problem. When it boots I first see the welcome screen, then the openSUSE Installer, whether I select the Live (GNOME) option, or the Installation.. it loads the kernel, and then loads the KIWI boot systemit is on the third event, waiting for CD/DVD dvices to appear... that something seems to fail... I then see Failed to detect CD/DVD or USB drivethen a rebootexception and it reboots in 120 seconds.
