To also uncheck the Use the system fixed width font checkbox from the command line, use: gconftool-2 --set /apps/gnome-terminal/profiles/Default/use_system_font --type=boolean false Tested on Linux Mint Cinnamon 17.1. Your mileage may vary.

After upgrade to 15.04 Vivid - both the fontconfig-ERROR as the /sbin/init -ERROR have gone and I can use my separate /home-Partition after some simple copying + chroot-ing again with presumably all my data in it ...

Had the same problem. This may be related. Bug #1166125 Removing package pango-graphite fixed the problem for me: sudo apt-get purge pango-graphite

For me this usually happens (sooner) when I got a second display hooked up to the laptop. Changing the aliasing using ubuntu tweak only temporarily solves the problem. Same for changing the font size using ubuntu's displays. Installing the Intel Graphics Installer for Linux (which is at version 1.1.0 now) doesn't seem to do anything at all. I ran the ...

This apparently deals with the Intel Graphics Drivers on some machines ; If you do not install Intel's Graphics Driver - then things like this happen. Unfortunately, whoever is running that project made the poor decision to remove all versions but the current from the download list. Thus, you cannot apply this fix unless you are running 14.10. I, ...

I have seen similar problems with 14.04. They seemed to be fixed in 14.10, and even better in 15.04 (this latter, specifically regarding nVidia cards). So upgrading will probably be worth a try. The underlying problem seems to be a bug within Unity itself. I have not encountered anything like it on XFCE, KDE or Cinnamon. If you do not wish to install a ...

At the moment there are only rpm packages for tuxjdk: http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/home:/TheIndifferent:/tuxjdk/ I need little more time to learn about debian packaging and prepare proper packages, plus document some interesting features of version 03 of tuxjdk. So stay tuned, and please report any issues you're facing with tuxjdk to ...

This link helped to solve my issue. the default config restricts the use of bitmap fonts, that's all. $ sudo rm /etc/fonts/conf.d/70-no-bitmaps.conf $ sudo ln -s /etc/fonts/conf.avail/70-yes-bitmaps.conf /etc/fonts/conf.d/70-yes-bitmaps.conf Nothing more is needed, the fonts should be available instantly.

It may not be exactly what you are expecting, but the Ambiance Theme for Chrome (Maverick) adjusts the font to an acceptable size.

See ubuntu vivid disrgards-console-setup after reboot and http://unix.stackexchange.com/questions/198791/. This problem seems to be caused by a mismatch in the naming of fonts that console-setup expects vs what are in /usr/share/consolefonts/, and thus copied to /etc/console-setup/ when you pick a font to use (using dpkg-reconfigure console-setup). If you ...

I've noted the same behavior when bolding an already bold font. Appearance in Inkscape and the SVG is unchanged whether or not bold is on, but the PDF has the appearance of being bolded twice when bold is on. So, the fix is to make sure that bold is turned off for such fonts, even though it doesn't appear to make any difference within Inkscape. I get the ...

You can also delete them manually. (That can be useful in some cases, for example: if you want to use a program like conky with a thin font like Raleway Thin, but Raleway Regular was also installed, conky will automatically use regular, while font-manager will not be able to tell the difference. So, the idea is to remove regular manually, etc.) If ...

The version of Font Manager in the Ubuntu repositories is very outdated, broken even. There is a PPA which tracks the latest GIT. This is the homepage.

To make DanielSteward anwser complete: Unfortunately tuxjdk for GTK look and feel uses font set in currently used gtkrc. But most of the themes don't set any font there. As a result netbeans will use bold Arial 15 as UI font. To fix that create gtkrc just for netbeans with fixed font and tell netbeans to use this file. I prepared special launcher that ...

I would suggest this article on WEB UPD8: Better Font Rendering In Linux With Infinality Infinality is a set of Freetype patches that try to provide an improved font rendering for Linux and also, to allow easy customization so the users can adjust the settings to their taste. Using it, you can easily set the font style to emulate OSX, OSX2, Windows ...

Ubuntu also uses the ttf format. Simply download any font and double click to install it. Windows fonts are avaliable on Ubuntu, including Arial and Times New Roman. Using the old command: sudo apt-get install msttcorefonts for installing Times New Roman font etc. Source To configure them - you want Unity Tweak Tool. Simply install it: ...

Install Unity Tweak Tool and try the "restore defaults" option under the "Fonts" setting. Normally high hinting values will cause the "thin"-looking typeface rendering. Also, take a look at this:https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Fonts#Font_settings

I had the same problem on my Dell Inspiron with 5th generation i5 running Ubuntu 14.04. Luckily I found a very easy solution for this.

Next time this happens , try opening terminal and running xrandr command. This should tell you what resolution of the screen you have.For instance, Here's 1280x800 resolution And here's 640x480 In other words, the lower resolution you have, the larger screen looks. Now, your screen may have glitched, hence you got that weird mode temporarily. To ...

This is not ubuntu-specific, but the zoom function of your browser. From the screenshot I can see you are using Firefox. The zoom hotkeys for it (and other browsers like Chrome) are: Ctrl++ to zoom in Ctrl+- to zoom out Ctrl+0(zero, not O) to revert back to default/100% zoom. If you want to learn more about Firefox keyboard shortcuts, read this article ...

Finally, I found the misplaced setting. I'll put it here in case someone somehow has the same issue. The setting that had changed and caused some texts in applications, especially the 'open file' and 'save file' dialogues to change, sits in System Settings > Application Style > GNOME Application Style (GTK) > GTK Themes > Font. This suggests that the ...
