fonts in woody X

[Date Prev][Date Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next][Date Index][Thread Index]


hi folks,

can someone tell me how to control fonts? for some reason, i have very
small and "smudgy" fonts in my new woody installation. however this is
limited to certain non-kde apps such as netscape. i tried GNOME with the
same results. (kde-apps in general have good fonts, but almost all fonts
in GNOME are smudgy though not small)

so i looked around and found some tricks (removing
/usr/share/apps/kdisplay, reordering the appearance of font paths in
XF86Config-4, fiddling with control centers in both gnome and kde,...
and about 2-3 days of other small changes), but to no avail. here is how
i defined the font section in my XF86Config-4. (I made sure that the
fonts do exist in the paths given hereunder.)

--------- start XF86Config-4 excerpt ---------------

# as root. Also see "How do I add custom sections to a dexconf-generated
# XF86Config or XF86Config-4 file?" in /usr/share/doc/xfree86-common/FAQ.gz.

Section "Files"
FontPath "unix/:7100" # local font server
# if the local font server has problems, we can fall back on these
FontPath "/usr/lib/X11/fonts/100dpi/:unscaled"
FontPath "/usr/lib/X11/fonts/75dpi/:unscaled"
FontPath "/usr/lib/X11/fonts/100dpi"
FontPath "/usr/lib/X11/fonts/75dpi"
FontPath "/usr/lib/X11/fonts/misc"
FontPath "/usr/lib/X11/fonts/Speedo"
FontPath "/usr/lib/X11/fonts/Type1"
FontPath "/usr/lib/X11/fonts/cyrillic"

Section "Module"
Load "GLcore"
Load "bitmap"

--------- end XF86Config-4 excerpt ---------------

anything else i should have done?please write to me if you need more
info to help.
