May 1st, 2008, 12:27 PM #1Linux is making my eyes bleed. lol
First of all, excuse me for any typos. I can't see the screen very well at the moment. LMAO.
MS pissed me off, so I took a new drive and downloaded the latest version of Ubuntu. I love the desktop and I am starting to get used to the setup.
Firefox came with this (F3-Beta5.) The only thing is that text in FF looks extremely thin. I used MS ClearType for my laptop before. Worked well. I have googled a bit to find work arounds but haven't had much luck in finding one I feel comfortable with.
Any ideas on what I can do to improve the text in FF?

Screen res any help ?
I personally hate big text. I use 1280x1024px. The text is still too huge.
I run Linux.

I am in 1280x800. Most everything looks fine now. I changed the default FF font to Khalid and switched on the sub-pixel smoothing via the system>prefs>appearance>fonts. Also changed all of my fonts there to Khalid. Looks a heck of a lot better.

CTRL+ does the same (or CTRL- to make it smaller) in FF. Haven't treid the new beta yet, but that's worked on every version to date.

Actually for those merely increasing the text size, you can hold control and use the mouse wheel too.
