Font rendering: need to avoid blurry, anti-aliased fonts in all software
Blurry text strains my eyes.
So I need monochrome font rendering in all the Linux software which I will be using.
i.e. I need to totally avoid blurry, anti-aliased fonts.
And to paraphrase once more: If I take a screen shot of any type on the screen, and enlarge it in some image editing software, all I want to see is the colour of the type and the background colour - no grey or other in-between colour to "smooth" the font.
I've looked at screen shots from LXDE, KDE, GNOME, etc, as posted on the web, and I see only blurry text in these.
From reading "Similar Threads" on this site, anti-aliased fonts seem to be the default setting on most Linux-compatible desktops. I just need to be able to have these fonts turned *off* entirely and reliably.
I would *greatly* appreciate advice on which Linux distros/desktops make this possible or even straight-forward, for the general use desktop-using newbie like me.
More about me and my Linux preferences: I've never used Linux before, however I like to work efficiently in a desktop environment for general personal use, with intelligently written and designed software which is highly customisable once I'm off the training wheels. So I've got to use Linux. I'll be using a GUI for a long time before I'd be interested in trying out working with a command line. I'm preferably after a hand-holding distro to start with, but getting the monochrome fonts is the essential feature for the distro, GUI, and additional software (app's, ulilities, etc).
Also, this presumably goes without saying, but being able to use an old-fashioned "Model M"- style clicky keyboard is also essential.
(I haven't posted this to the newbie forum because this isn't specifically a newbie question.)
THANK YOU!! for this wonderful website and forum, and in advance for some great advice.
