Ubuntu :: Switching Off Font Smoothing In FF?

Oct 11, 2010

I am trying to disable font smoothing in Firefox 3.6.10 in Ubuntu 10.10. I have disabled font smoothing in System > Preferences > Appearance > Fonts (Rendering = Monochrome) Firefox continues smoothing fonts and some other applications also continue to smooth them. I have tried restarting the system

Ubuntu :: Font Smoothing In Browsers?

May 3, 2010

After Installing 10.04, I've noticed that web browsers seem to be ignoring the font rendering settings set for the ui (System>Preferences>Appearance>Fonts).So far I've tried Firefox, Chromium and Opera, and text renders equally blurry in all of them. Changing from one rendering method to another has an effect on menu bars etc, but doesn't change how text appears inside of a browser, for better or worse.

Ubuntu :: Switch Off Font Smoothing In Firefox 4?

May 2, 2011

I don't like the subpixel font smoothing (aka ClearType) in my browser window. Is there a way to switch it off? Switching off font smoothing in System > Preferences > Appearance is affecting Ubuntu itself, but not Firefox. Besides, the smoothing for Ubuntu itself is ok, but I don't want this in my browser. How can I disable it?

General :: How To Get Font Smoothing To Work In Firefox

Jul 16, 2011

I'm using Arch Linux with KDE 4.6 and Firefox 5.0, and I had to install a GTK+ theme to make apps like Firefox look nicer.Now, I have another problem—Firefox doesn't use font smoothing on sites, even though KDE itself uses font smoothing. I didn't see anything related to that in settings.

Ubuntu :: Font Hinting Subpixel Smoothing On Slight Not Full?

Sep 28, 2010

Using Ubuntu 10.04.My fonts looked different today. Only slightly different. So I went into the appearance preferences to try to figure it out.In, Systems->Preferences->Appearance, click the "Fonts" tab and for "Rendering" select "Subpixel smoothing (LCDs)".Then click "Details". For hinting I choose "Full". Then I close the "Font Rendering Details" dialog box. And close the "Appearance Preferences" dialog box.

My problem is that my system won't keep my "Subpixel smoothing (LCDs)" font Hinting setting on "Full". It keeps changing it back to "Slight". When I go back into the settings one thing I notice that you can see in the picture is that for "Rendering" they all have the minus sign. Then when I re-click on "Subpixel smoothing (LCDs)" it shows up as "slight".

Debian :: Install Any Package To Make Font Smoothing Better ?

May 23, 2010

I am pretty new to GNU/Linux. I use Mint but want to use Debian. The problem is, Debian has worse font smoothing. Ubuntu's smoothing is great! Is there any possibility to simply install any package on Debian stable to make Debian's font smoothing exactly as it is in Ubuntu?

Ubuntu :: Subpixel Smoothing Causes Text To Be Colourful?

Jun 9, 2010

I just bought a new monitor, Acer H243HX 24" 1920x1080. I have Ubuntu 10.04 and subpixel smoothing enabled with slight hinting and RGB-order (monitor has same RGB-order). The problem is that fonts seems to have "too heavy" smoothing: fonts doesn't look black but colourful. Text has almost unnoticeable but very irritating colour glow. I have tried grayscale smoothing but with it fonts don't look as nice as with subpixel smoothing.

I have been wondering whether problem is associated with software or hardware. Could problem be caused by the fairly large pixel pitch (pixel size) of my monitor (0.276 mm)? I have used two other monitors with Ubuntu 10.04 and same smoothing settings. They had pixel pitch of 0.26 mm. I haven't noticed any colour glow in these monitors even though I have tried to see it.

General :: Missing Glyphs In Terminus Font - Setup A Fallback Font?

Jul 8, 2010

Most of my work happens in a terminal, so I need a clear, readable font. I've settled a while ago on Terminus [URL]..., which works wonders for me. I added XTerm*faceName : Terminus in my ~/.Xdefaults, and I do get the Terminus font. Unfortunately, a lot of Unicode glyphs are missing (mathematical symbols, greek and hebrew letters), displaying as little square blocks instead.

If I remove the faceName entry, the default configuration seems able to display most of the glyphs (including math, greek, hebrew, runic, and whatever else), but the default font is much harder to read.

A google search hints that it should be possible to use Terminus as the default font, and fallback to (an)other one(s) for missing glyphs, but provides no further explanation. I've seen documentation that recommends Bitstream Vera Sans as a fallback, but it lacks the glyphs I need too; I don't know how to identify the default font used by xterm either, I had a look at /usr/share/X11/app-defaults/XTerm, but all I can find are generic references to old pre-fontconfig font names.

Using Gentoo Linux, fontconfig and xterm are up to date, USEs trutype and unicode enabled, X.Org server 1.6.

Edit: I alternate between Ratpoison, Awesome and XMonad, without a desktop environment.

Ubuntu :: By Default Pango Is Choosing AR PL UMing CN As Font To Render Japanese Text When Current Font Doesn't Have Japanese Glyphs

May 4, 2010

Actually I want to log a bug but I don't really know what package to log it against. The problem is that by default Pango is choosing the AR PL UMing CN as the font to render Japanese text when the current font doesn't have Japanese glyphs. But AR PL UMing CN is a Chinese font, so Chinese glyphs for kanji characters (e.g., 覚) are displayed. This is jarring and confusing for Japanese readers.

This situation mostly arises when you have mixed English and Japanese text. Some applications (for instance Firefox) will allow you to select a font for Asian text. Thus if the text contains only Asian characters it will use the font you select, rather than what Pango would have selected. But if it is a mix of English and Japanese, you end up with the wrong glyphs.

Other environments (like gnome-terminal, or a gedit) have difficulties as well. Since the primary interface requires mono spaced roman characters you run into difficulty selecting fonts. Most Japanese fonts only have proportional roman characters. This means that if use a nice roman font and use Japanese text (for instance file names), you end up with Chinese glyphs. What I want is a mechanism that will work across all of Gnome for selecting the font I want to use for Chinese characters. That way I can choose either Japanese or Chinese glyphs.

I realize this is low priority. It only bugs me a little, but many of my Japanese colleagues are put off from using Ubuntu because they are confused by the Chinese glyphs that pop up on my screen from time to time. As I said, I'd like to file a bug, but I'm not sure against what package...

Fedora :: Upgrade To KDE 4.4 And "Configure Kmail" Displayed In The Default Font No In Console Font

Feb 25, 2010

In all previous versions of KDE I had Console8x16 set as KDE font for all cases (Settings->Appearance->Fonts). After tonight upgrade, this (only!) font is not working. I can see it in font manager, I can set it in ...Appearance->Fonts, but actually remains default font. Two of about 30 attempts somehow (can not reproduce) succeeded to set "console 12" font, but it disappeared after restart.

1. What can be the problem in 4.4?
2. In /usr/share/fonts tere are 3 files named console8x16.pcf, console8x8.pcf and console9x15.pcf, but in the font list in Appearance->Fonts I can see only 2 - one named "Console" (seems to be 8x16 and "console" (8x8). File 9x15 does not appear at all. Why?

Last results of attempts: cannot use console font in part of areas, while part works OK. For example: kdevelop editor, kmail message body text works OK. But kmail other parts - does not. The most interesting is that although setting the kmail body message text to console displays the message body text correctly (with console font), but the example message in "Configure kmail" dialogue "The Quick Brown Fox Jumps Over The Lazy Dog" is displayed in the default font, as if there is no console font!

Ubuntu Installation :: Switching From 32 Bit To 64 Bit?

Mar 22, 2010

I got a new 64 bit computer and in my infinite wisdom I installed the server edition of Ubuntu 9.10. I managed to correct that issue and now I'm running the 32 bit version of Ubuntu on my new machine on a dual boot with Windows7.

What I'm wondering is if there is a way that I could possibly switch to the 64 bit version of Ubuntu 9.10 and still be able to boot my Windows OS. I know that I could remove the 32 bit Ubuntu and start fresh, but I'm concerned that if I do that I might not be able to boot the Windows OS, due to the replacement of the Windows boot with GRUB.

Ubuntu :: Switching From UNR To Desktop?

sudo apt-get install ubuntu-desktop && sudo apt-get purge ubuntu-netbook*

To switch from UNR to the Desktop version.

Everything is fine except for the fact that when I have a maximized window, I do not have the minimize, maximize, and close buttons.

I have a feeling I just need to tweak something in gconf-editor, but I can't seem to find the correct setting.

Ubuntu :: Compositing Keeps Switching Off?

Nov 26, 2010

I'm running kubuntu, 10.10, 64 bit on my ASUS X59GL, with 4Gb ram - and NVIDIA on board GeForce 8200m.

I'm running KDE with compositing switched on - trouble is that it keeps saying Desktop effects are too slow and compositing is suspended. Surely this setup is powerful enough - this seems to be getting worse with each subsequent release - (a couple of releases ago, this didn't happen).

It's just happened again, and all I'm running is Firefox, nautilus, skype and dropbox (all but firefox are minimised), and uptime load average is .3 Is anyone else experiencing this problem?

Is there any 'ratings' as to how 'expensive' each of the effects are? - i.e. which are the least impact, and which are the most?

Ubuntu :: Switching From GNOME To KDE?

Nov 26, 2010

I currently run Linux Mint 9/GNOME on my main desktop but am thinking of switching to KDE. The main reason being that the file managers seem to have more to offer than anything in GNOME and the DE itself just seems to look better.

So the question is, if I switch, what issues am I likely to run into? I would like to continue using as many of the same programs as possible and I know that a lot of them are going to require GNOME dependencies and either might not run or will run slow, but I'm not very Linux savvy and don't know much beyond that.

I would like to still use Compiz, Guayadeque, and a few other programs. If I am going to loose the ability to run a lot of programs I am use to just to get the nicer file browser and DE then it's probably not worth it.

I'm pretty familiar with GNOME now so I'm looking for some advice from KDE users, especially if you started with GNOME.

Ubuntu :: Switching From Gcc-4.4 To Gcc4.1?

Dec 2, 2010

I am trying to switch from gcc-4.4 (defaut with the "sudo apt-get install build-essential" command) to gcc-4.1

I was able to install gcc-4.1 using sudo apt-get install gcc-4.1 The command "which gcc-4.1" gives "/usr/bin/gcc-4.1" I suppose this means that it is properly installed. I was also able to uninstall gcc-4.4 using "sudo apt-get remove gcc-4.4" However, the command "gcc --version" gives "/usr/bin/gcc: No such file or directory" This is because the gcc file(?) is named gcc-4.1. A name change should work, I think. But I do not have the rights to rename this file (after right clicking, "rename" is inaccessable).

Is there some way to use sudo apt-get install gcc-4.1 and make it install into/usr/bin/gcc to avoid these issues?

Or maybe direct the OS to usr/bin/gcc-4.1 rather than usr/bin/gcc?

Ubuntu :: Switching From UFW To Iptables

Dec 20, 2010

So I've used UFW for quite some time now and its been great. But I'm thinking its time to take the plunge into iptables. I want to start blocking repeated connections from IPs trying to brute force my SSH.

I've been reading up on iptables, and it doesn't seem too bad. But I have a few questions I'm hoping people can help with.

1) If I've been using UFW, do I need to do anything special to switch to iptables. I was just going to do "ufw disable". But do I need to uninstall it, or something special. Because even when I do ufw disable, there are still lines in the iptables talking about ufw.

2) regarding those lines, do I need to get rid of them? Is there a way to revert the iptables back to default? These are the lines.


3) I've read some things that the order of rules in the "chain" matters, but I don't fully understand it. Does it just mean that whatever comes first within the chain takes precedence? So does that mean that if I want to add a new rule, I can't just add it, but I have to make sure it gets listed in the right order?

4) I don't fully understand what these "chains" are either. I can kind of understand the three main ones, INPUT, FORWARD and OUTPUT. But then ufw seems to have added a lot of other ones. What are those?

5) again on chains, if I add a drop IP to the INPUT chain. From my understanding it prevents it from connecting to you. Do I need to put it in the forward chain also? Or just worry about the input chain to prevent connections to me.

Ubuntu :: Taskbar Switching On And Off In The Terminal

Jan 6, 2010

I am a new Ubuntu user (three months so far on Karmic amd64, and very happy with my new OS). I had to do a force shutdown after a system freeze (while viewing video on my tv - dual display - with vlc). Upon restart, I noticed the network connection icon missing from the taskbar; there was an empty "slot" between the evolution and sound icons so I figured the network icon was simply not appearing correctly.

I right clicked in that empty "slot" and chose to remove from taskbar with the intention of putting it back. After clicking remove, the taskbar started a cycle of constant disappear and reappear (about one second between each). The cycle is too fast to allow navigating in menus but I can access the terminal. Being new and all, I don't know how to configure the taskbar through the terminal... fix my taskbar in the terminal?

Ubuntu :: Hard Drive Switching On And Off?

Jan 13, 2010

Recently I noticed my hard drive sounding like it was repeatedly clicking off and then immediately spinning back up. Obviously, this doesn't sound like it is very good for the hard drive, and may be the cause of my computer locking up the other night.

I believe the affected hard drive is a Seagate 1TB SATA drive I bought this past summer, which is connected to the on-board SATA controller (SiLabs, I think?). Here is the dmesg output from when the problem started occurring.

Ubuntu :: 9.10 Keeps Switching To Low Color Depth?

Apr 12, 2010

Basically I've just installed Ubuntu 9.10 on an old Acer Aspire 3000 laptop. When I first did the install I observed that the screen color depth was very low so after browsing the forums I ran the latest updates and then everything was perfect.

However after a restart the color depth reverted back to low. I created an xorg.conf file and set the default depth to 24. However no luck. I then set the color depth to 16 in this file and restarted. This time it switched to the 16 bit color depth, however after a restart again it all reverted back! I tried changing the value again but it is now stuck at the low color depth again.

The driver I am using is the updated SIS driver that was provided from Ubuntu for the onboard 661 SIS video card.
