font quality still poor in firefox
I need help to get the BEST, sharpest, most crisp font quality (including proper size) in Firfox, using Ubuntu Feisty Fawn, to match Windows as much as possible (Vista). I've tried so much, no matter what I've done I cannot get the fonts as crisp as Windows at all.
I installed 32bit Ubuntu Feisty Fawn and by default, the resolution was properly set to 1280x800 (widescreen) on 60Hz refresh.
I'm struggling to get the best font quality possible
What I've done
- msttcorefonts http://www.warrenguy.com/docs/ubuntu...ing-fonts.html
- freetype http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=343670
- copy over all segoe*, calabra* and tahoma* fonts from Windows
- cloned firefox 2 font settings of Windows into here in Ubuntu
- I have gtk2-engines-pixbuf enabled by Ubuntu's default (double checked via synaptic)
I already applied http://www.howtoforge.com/sharp_fonts_gnome as well, but look at the comparison of font size and boldness. They are still getting bolded, enlarged for GOD knows what reason, in linux.
Look at the fonts all over the screen, mainly the forum category titles
and text on right column too. They are bigger, bolder. I do not know why.
See now in Windows, this is how it SHOULD appear in linux.
How can I fix this?
My current font settings:
(firefox setting matches exact settings in default firefox windows settings)
Right now, I have .fonts.conf file with this, taken from the link you mentioned and unchanged:
Sony Vaio FE770G Laptop
15.4" Widescreen (1280x800)
That's my site. I use 96dpi, 1280x800 resolution and 24bit.
The windows one is the smoothest and in Vista, it is even smoother (but they show XP)
Somehow, PLD linux is a lot better by default than Ubuntu. What they do , Ubuntu should learn from. PLD linux, it does not mysteriously enlarge fonts and bold them 10x more than they should be.
