I recently tested ubuntu 10.10 rc and would like to report a "cosmetic thing". If i use the new radiance theme and click on a menu point in firefox the fontcolor of the active menupoint changes to white on a silver or light grey background which is not easy to read. The submenu is displayed well because of the orange hover effect.

I would like to use the Adobe Garamond Pro in my text doccument in open office writer. I got a text document where from a friend where it is used so I know that it can. But when I want to edit I cant find it in the fonts dropdown menu.
It came up saying I could install 2 proprietary drivers, one for my WiFi adapter (which works perfectly) and one for my graphics card - a Sapphire AIT Radeon HD 5770 1024MB GDDR5 PCI-Express Graphics Card. The driver is called ATI/AMD proprietary FGLRX graphics driver. Before installing this driver I was unable to have Extra Visual Effects in Appearances. However after installing (and restarting) the menu bars are now in a basic light gray mode, rather than the sleek Ubuntu black. - Although Extra Visual Effects does now work. I've tried rebooting, and I've had a look around in ATI "Catalyst Control Center" but nothing has worked so far.
Does anybody know what this windows mode is, how to change it back to normal and why it's doing it in the first place?
Below is a screenshot of my computer: [URL]
This is also the first time I've installed Ubuntu on my computer, and am keen for it to work.
I'm desperately trying to activate the autoscroll-function in firefox, but firefox just wont let me. When using the "normal" settings dialog, autoscroll is immediatly deactivated again after activating it. Why? In about:config,n't change the value of general.autoscroll. It just seems to be locked in some way.I installed gpointing-device-settings to use my thinkpad-trackpoint and figured it could overwrite the firefox settings in some way
in latest Ubuntu version 10.04 LTS lucid lynx in default style Ambiance the bar is dark, menus background also is dark and fonts are white. Unfortunatelly in Opera which is Qt application menus background is also dark, but fonts are black so menu becomes extremely blured- you can see the effects on below print screen:
How to force Opera to use GTK style (white fonts etc.)? Settings in qt4-qtconfig don't make any changes (I use Opera built with Qt4).
I'm coming from windows and now I've switched to ubuntu. I find firefox 3.5 (and now 3.6) very hard to read. I'd like to have the same font rendering on my ubuntu than on my windows xp, using internet explorer with cleartype enabled. I've searched A LOT on Internet, tested like 20 different .fonts.conf. However I still can't get what I want. Take a look at my screenshots :[URL]
On the left : ubuntu (Firefox 3.6) - on the right : XP (Internet Explorer I'd like to have the same fonts than on the right.
Picture "enabled.png" is the closest display I can get. But it's still not perfect. I took the .fonts.conf from this site : [URL]
I've also tried the fonts from the site [URL]Look here : [URL](this one is different : IE8 is on the left)
My fonts config in firefox is the same than on windows (Times new roman, arial, courrier new). And of course I've installed the ttf mscorefonts package.
I don't say that IE is the best thing in the world It's only because I've used it a lot and now it's hard to browse sites with different fonts.
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?
Not sure if the font by Default in opensuse 11.4 is intended to look "thin" but I want to make it look "standard" I tried setting changing the settings in the fonts menu but its not what I was searching for. How do I make the system font more "round and smooth". If anyone has tried the distro Ubuntu or Fedora, the font is more "plain."
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?
I just upgraded a laptop from an older version of Ubuntu to 10.04.1 LTS, which included an upgrade of firefox to ver. 3.6.9. Many pages in firefox now display only some of the text, although if I hilight where the text should be I get hilighted areas and if I copy and paste them into an editor the text shows up. Other pages display normally.
An example of this is [URL] where the "Welcome to the Ubuntu Forums ..." (un-logged in) paragraph is invisible although the off-white box which should contain this text is there. A few things I've tried and discovered:
* SeaMonkey doesn't have this problem (I'm using it to write this).
* If I un-check "Allow pages to choose their own fonts", the invisible text shows up with locally spec'd fonts. Specifying local font colors makes no difference.
* Switching users makes no difference.
* I've tried re-installing a large number of ttf fonts plus fontconfig, which makes no difference.
I was running SUSE 10.0 for a long time. At one point, I tried ubuntu 8.10, but went back to SUSE 10.0 because I couldn't take the huge fonts. I'm committed to running Linux (I'm a software developer with 25 years experience on UNIX and Linux platforms). I've been able to shrink the icon size on the desk via the file browser, change the other fonts, etc. - but running Google, and even this linuxquestions.org interface is an experience that's as if I had 20/400 vision (I have 20/20-30).
How do I shrink this? Zooming in and out from the "view" pulldown sort of works, but it's temporary - plus, doing that causes the resolution on the smaller print to get pretty blurry. Even the fonts and icons on the toolbar are HUGE! SUSE didn't exhibit this behavior - but I'd rather be running ubuntu, since that's what most of my potential employers are running. It would seem a certainty this has come up before, but I haven't found an answer yet. I'll use ANY font/configuration combination that will give me smaller print, that isn't blurry.
there just installed, this OS on ELONEX then need to compile openchromium x11 driver on ext monitor -went fine, got visible on this netbook lcd..but can't get working global-menu, can use it with keyboard only descriptions of icons in menu are not readable, I did try already different settings, can't modify panel, i was trying to find package like global menu or gtk appmenu no success,
I reduced my system font sizes from default 10 down to 8, but I want to also reduce the height of the Main Menu correspondingly. I've searched the forums and Google, but can't find a method for doing this. See the screenshots - both menu heights are exactly the same, but if I reduce the font size, I'd like the menu to shrink too.
I would like to know if there is a fix for firefox font menus, also the font for bookmarks, the problem is that these fonts are too big , like 16 , instead of 10 or 12
i've had this problem with all linux distros that i've used, everything is fine except the menu and bookmark fonts in firefox, same in chrome, menu and bookmark fonts are big, anything i tried i could not make it look like the normal font sizes in windows or even Konqueror. and it not that only that it is big fonts, they are also wide.
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
I have some strange problem with rendering monospace fonts in FF and Epiphany. There is some attached example - most pages with some code blocks look like it, it is not possible to see the text, even after selecting it. I tried to change settings in FF of fonts, tried to change size, colors, font, but still it is not visible at all no matter what. However pages like that are displayed fine in "Chromium". Does anyone have an idea where do I begin solving this?
I've installed Arial fonts as per this package:msttcore-fonts-2.0-3.noarch.rpmut why do some of the Arial fonts look not right in Firefox 3.5? It seems that Arial 10pt bold is the worst, with large spacing between the letters.In Ubuntu, using that same RPM and the same version of Firefox, the fonts look fine.I have two screen shots you can click on:1) Fedora 12 beta:Ubuntu 9.04:irefox-ubuntu.gifLook at the top left corner, "Jamieson Cottages by the River" - it's almost like the Arial 10pt bold is double spaced in Fedora.Whereas in Ubuntu, things look much better in terms of letter spacing.
I went ahead and installed msttcorefonts because I need them for college work. However, when I have them installed, a few sites here and there like Facebook will use the font, but it'll be fuzzy, which is the complete opposite of what the free fonts did for me. I've thought about whether it would be possible to block those fonts in Firefox or only make them available in Libreoffice (the only place where I even need them), but there doesn't seem to be a way to do so.
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 have Fedora 10 running and the firefox fonts look really crappy for web content, especially for certain web sites. I have Samsung SyncMaster 941BW 19" widescreen LCD monitor. I have NVidia GE Force 5500FX graphics card. Following are the things I tried after going through some articles on web.
1. Installed msttcorefonts and webcorefonts packages. Set Firefox to use 'Times New Roman', 'Arial' and 'Georgia'. 2. Got freetype with BCI enabled. 3. Changed DisplaySize to enable 96DPI and changed the same on Gnome font settings. 4. Enabled LCD subpixel smoothing and full hinting.
I've tried both "nv" and "kmod-nvidia-173xx" drivers for the NVidia card. I tried 1440x900 (native resolution) and 1152x864 (seems to be next best but everything looks stretched). I have seen some improvements with above, but still the fonts strain my eyes. I use 'Bitstream Vera' fonts for application. The fonts and display look splendid within Fedora, but the problem is with the web content in Firefox. I use my system primarily for web browsing.
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".
