comment How can I prevent eyestrain?
Yes, it's a novel idea I could perhaps try. However, I suspect there's a more fundamental technical reason.

comment How can I prevent eyestrain?
Thanks for the interesting suggestion. I tried this, and it does change the font, but now my computer looks like it did when I was using Windows 98. :) Not a good solution because I think the proper Ubuntu fonts look great. Anyway, I've tried so many font combinations now that I think the problem may be nothing to do with the fonts. But i dont' know what else... Oh well, maybe one day I'll be able to use Ubuntu without my eyes hurting...

Thx, yes, also 60hz on windows. I do use cleartype on windows, but i've used it without too. In fact, any combination of fonts and rendering is fine with no eyestrain at all on windows. I've had this same issue with ubuntu since 9.10. I try again when the version changes to see if there's any difference...

Yes, I agree it's hard to know, but I'm using just the defaults. I've been trying linux mint too. Same problem, but then i go back to windows and my eyes are fine.
