Ubuntu :: Firefox Fonts Wrong After Installing Truetype Fonts / Why Is So?

Jan 15, 2010

I just finished installing a bunch of truetype fonts. After installing them, firefox is displaying "bradybunch" font when I search google.

The font settings are all serif and sans serif in both the system fonts settings and firefox settings.

I am using ubuntu 9.10.

Any idea why this could be happening?

This is really frustrating..> I just successfully installed Kubuntu 11.04 and after updating the system and installing the recommended Nvidia driver, the fonts are crazy small.. See the attached screenshot.

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.

OpenSUSE :: Installing Fonts In Gnome Desktop?

Feb 18, 2010

opensuse v11.2 The Gnome help describes how to install fonts: copy the font files to </usr/share/fonts>. I have some Type1 fonts with PFB, PFM, AFM and sometimes INF face files. The only ones I see in the <Type1> directory are AFM and PFA. Which font files does Gnome actually require? Is a PFA needed? Are the font files moved/deleted from </usr/share/fonts/> after installation? Is there a more obvious way to install fonts in Gnome?

Ubuntu :: Making Firefox 3.6 Fonts Look Like IE7 Or IE8

Jan 29, 2010

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.

why fonts in Chrome and Opera/Firefox are so different, even though they're set the same (Arial and Times New Roman)?

Ubuntu :: Firefox Fonts Invisible After Upgrade?

Sep 11, 2010

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.

* This problem wasn't there before the upgrade.

Ubuntu :: Firefox Fonts Huge - How To Shrink

May 12, 2010

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.

Ubuntu :: Monospace Fonts Not Rendered In Firefox And Epiphany?

Feb 7, 2011

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?

Fedora :: Some Of The Arial Fonts Look Not Right In Firefox 3.5?

Nov 13, 2009

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.

Fedora :: Block Fonts In Firefox?

Aug 30, 2011

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.

Ubuntu :: Fonts Look Different After Installing Wine?

Mar 23, 2010

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?

Ubuntu :: Installing Fonts From Exe File

May 14, 2011

I have clean installed my system to 11.04 and lost some important fonts of course. I am using specialist IPA fonts for some important documents, but the file is in exe form. However, I have that blocked executable bit problem. It's getting really annoying, as now many legitimate programs that I have can't be used on Linux anymore. All I need to do is extract the file and then let Ubuntu install the ttf (as it has done so in the past).

Red Hat / Fedora :: Firefox Fonts Look Crappy For Web Contents

Apr 23, 2009

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.
