Post date: December 14, 2006, 09:12 Category: Desktop Views: 4538 Comments
Tutorial quote: With Microsoft as dominant as it is (see Bug #1) we often need to look for compatibility options for a number of things. There are teams working on all types of compatibility issues but one of them is already taken care of (and I’m sure there are many more to come). This tutorial will allow you to install Microsoft’s Core Font package on your Ubuntu system, allowing you to see and use the same fonts that all of our Windows friends are used to.

Tutorial quote: Unlike past times, Linux do come with good fonts. And the font rendering can be made better by choosing to antialiase the fonts. But at times you come across a website which has been designed with the windows user in mind. Such websites are best viewed with one of the windows fonts. If you have windows OS installed on your machine, you can copy the essential fonts from the windows partition to linux and use them to get a better web experience. Here is how you do it.

Good-looking fonts in X Windows

Post date: April 23, 2005, 09:04 Category: Desktop Views: 2512 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.

This will be a bit of a pain for many enterprise customers. The technical reason is because Microsoft Vista’s default security policy is to only use NTLMv2 authentication. According to a Google search Samba doesn’t support this yet.
