Good-looking fonts in X Windows

Post date: April 23, 2005, 09:04 Category: Desktop Views: 2533 Comments
Tutorial quote: What makes the difference betweek "ugly" and "beautiful" fonts? Several things.

One of them is anti-aliasing (or AA in short). It's the technique which adds gray pixels in various shades around the edges of black text and thus blurs the jagged and pixelated edges. It works with other colors, too.

Another thing is having good quality fonts to start with. Font which are ugly by nature or don't scale well to various sizes are not much nicer when anti-aliased. See what kinds of fonts are out there by browsing through the Font HOWTO (not the same as the FDU HOWTO above).

Finally, there's the issue of readability which applies to you directly. How well does the end-product look anyhow? Do you really need anti-aliasing for an 8 pixel text? And other similar questions, which you'll learn how to answer according to your own preferences.

Post date: August 18, 2005, 18:08 Category: System Views: 11656 Comments
Tutorial quote: How many times have you accidentally overwritten a configuration file during an etc-update that you had customized? I had been aware of extended attributes for a long while now, but I had never taken the time to actually use them. The extended attribute that I am mostly interested with is the immutable attribute.
