Font problem


I use suse 11.0 with kde 4.1.3 I don't know how it happened but all fonts in suse have become small, some appear italic and unreadable and ugly. Changing font options from personal settings does not have any effect. Also when everything was normal and default fonts were present, still my firefox fonts were ugly that time. I really love windows fonts. Can anyone help me here? This has started to get really annoying.

Have you tried a KDE information source? It sounds like a bug in KDE 4.

If you can get your fonts fixed in the system as a whole, you can change those in Firefox by opening Edit at the top, going down to Preferences and in Pref. opening Content. There you will see Fonts&Colors with Advanced on the right. There are the places and ways the fonts appear with dropdowns you cab open.

This appears that it is possable to install Microsoft fonts from 10.3. I only looked it up, I didn't try this. Good luck.

Ok keep firefox and windows fonts aside. I just want my default suse font config back. Moving .kde4 doesn't helps.

It appears that when I tried to install windows fonts (Just created a folder in usr/share/fonts/ then copied fonts there.)and when I selected them through personal settings, my default san serif appears to be broken.(It remains italic in both italic and general settings). From where I can download or restore suse 11 default san serif?
