I wish I had an answer. I don't have enough of a reputation to leave a comment, so I will ask my question here. What hardware are you running on? What display driver are you using? I have similar problems on a t450s which uses the Intel Broadwell HD Graphics 5500. Example screen shots. Notice the missing u in Buffers and the missing s in Lisp from the ...

As a Mint user ( using the same Ubuntu packages ) , I've found that everything was fine in Chromium up until 41.0.2272.76-0ubuntu0.14.04.1.1076. Since then, the fonts in tabs, menus and bookmarks have grown by about 2pt as per the screenshots. Chrome itself is still displaying correctly with the smaller font size. I have google-chrome-stable 41.0.2272.89-1 ...

You've downloaded an OpenType font and stored it in the TrueType font directory. I've got the exact same font but stored in /usr/share/fonts/opentype/ and the Inconsolata PDF test file displays perfectly after a: sudo fc-cache --force --verbose log out log back in...

Antialiasing toggle You should be able if you toggle configs in /etc/fonts/conf.avail/, namely antialiasing, less so autohinting. How to do so: change the true to false in 10-antialias.conf or vice versa and you toggled the antialiasing and can see if it helps. Similarly for 10-autohinting.conf. This toggles the setting for all fonts AFAIR, so just take a ...

Having installed the font, it didn't show right away for me either. Here's the steps I took to make it show up: 1) Move the font to /usr/share/fonts/truetype` directory: Create a directory /usr/share/fonts/truetype/Monofur/ and move the font files (in my case, I only moved Monofur for Powerline.ttf) either with file manager or with mv command. Note, you ...

I had the same problem, and found a post that suggested changing the font size of the "ubuntu" default font (had to install something called ubuntu tweaks to be able to do so). After changing the font size, everything was displayed correctly. I still have some issues with my terminal blanking out once in a while, but just pressing enter a few times, and ...

To install a font simply open the font.exe file with the Archive Manager to view the contents of this archive. We then install the contained TTF font with a double click on the ...

MS Office fonts are fonts from Microsoft. Microsoft doesn't make binaries for other OS like Ubuntu, thus ttf-mscorefonts-installer download various MS fonts in exe format and then cabextract extracts fonts from these exe files.

Because the exe's contain the fonts - I don't think they are installed as Window does them, they are extracted (EDIT: on windows they self-extract, thanks @JakeGould) To see this, you can download one (I did this one), and open it up in file-roller (Archive Manager): Ubuntu and other people probably can't distribute the fonts directly to licensing things ...

There is a workaround is available to this problem. Just turn off the anti-aliasing. But the font look very ugly if we turn off that. Another Solution is just create a file in sudo gedit /etc/gimp/2.0/fonts.conf Paste the lines <fontconfig> <match target="font"> <edit name="rgba" mode="assign"> <const>none</const> ...
