You definitely don't have to uninstall Unity. Maybe the simplest solution is install Unity Tweak Tool, and setting the font sizes to suit for you. You can also modify the dconf database with dconf-editor, but that is more tedious and also requires software installation. You can install Unity Tweak Tool using the Software Center, or by the terminal command: ...

I have Ubuntu same as yours, and an nvidia gt820. I've used an extra screen with my laptop before and experienced none of the issues you face. I would do these steps. Check to see if you're using latest Ubuntu updates Check you installed the graphics drivers using additional driver settings in Ubuntu. Its hard to say for certainty, but it might be a ...

According to these webpages (1, 2), it should be as simple as copying the font files to a specific folder. Any one of these folders should work: /usr/local/share/fonts/ /usr/share/fonts/ ~/.fonts/ (for fonts visible only to the current user) (And having the font files with read permissions for all may be required for other users to use them, either chmod ...

you could try installing dconf-editor. This will give you access to a lot of "under-the-hood" settings. In dconf-editor go to org -> gnome -. desktop -> interface ... and then set the scalng-factor to 1. Also set text-scaling-factor to 1. Make a note of the current settings before you change them so you can always put them back the way you found them if ...

Got the same crazy issue but I found that it can be fixed by resetting the fonts to defaults using the Unity Tweak Tool. It's a available in the Software Center. I would like to know why it is doing this, though. I have to reset everything about once a week. :)

As your current user settings seem to be corrupted, and the guest account is not affected, do the following: Go to system settings - User accounts create an additional user (let's call it "User2") with the same privileges as your current user. Now, log out of the "bad" session and log in as "user2" and come back here to this site. Everything is fine? Well ...

For me the solution for bold fonts in Google Chrome was rm -rf /usr/share/fonts/truetype/roboto I've installed the Roboto fonts myself a long time ago. The location should be the same if you haven't copied it manually. I'm using Mint 17.

You don't need to install anything. Add the following lines: [Qt] font="Droid Sans,14,-1,5,50,0,0,0,0,0" To the .config/Trolltech.conf file, set the Clearlooks theme in Skype and restart.

U+2B80 does not denote any character; it is an unassigned code point, aka. reserved code point. This means that no character has been assigned to it, but such an assignment may be made in a future version of Unicode. Therefore, it should not be used be used in character data at all, not even by private agreements. If a font contains a glyph allocated to ...

I had the same error. You have to do a "sudo" and issue the command one by one : $ wget http://download.microsoft.com/download/ie6sp1/finrel/ $ cabextract -F 'tahoma*ttf' IELPKTH.CAB $ sudo mv -f tahoma*ttf /usr/share/fonts/truetype/msttcorefonts/ $ chmod 644 /usr/share/fonts/truetype/msttcorefonts/tahoma* $ fc-cache -v $ rm -f IELPKTH.CAB

I think you need to install some additional package. For begin you can try this one: sudo apt-get install console-setup Then you can change the font. You need to chose font with Chinese symbols.

ev-document-misc.c is source file. So you cannot use it directly; it is one of the files from which executable file /usr/bin/evince is compiled. They are not in the standard installation. But you can add them (source codes) to your computer and create altered evince from them by this instructions. Edit your file before you will run make command.

This is a known and fixed bug in GNOME GTK 3.10 [used in Ubuntu Trusty 14.04]. It has been fixed in GTK+ 3.13.7 (unstable release). The fix will be available for the GTK+ 3.14 stable version in September, per Sébastien Wilmet (https://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=715008#c27). The solution is to patch the gedit desktop launcher (file gedit.desktop), ...

You don't want the users to have to use root? Installing softare usually requires root. On Ubuntu (and I'd assume most debian-based distros) you can copy the fonts into a subdirectory of /usr/share/fonts/truetype (I assume they are TTF's) and update the font cache. If you're creating a deb package, you can simply pack them so that they will be installed ...
