I need help to get the BEST, sharpest, most crisp font quality (including proper size) in Ubuntu Feisty Fawn, to match Windows as much as possible (Vista). I've tried so much, no matter what I've done I cannot get the fonts as crisp as Windows at all.
I installed 32bit Ubuntu Feisty Fawn and by default, the resolution was properly set to 1280x800 (widescreen) on 60Hz refresh. Do I need to install/enable 915resolution?
I'm struggling to get the best font quality possible
What I've done
- msttcorefonts http://www.warrenguy.com/docs/ubuntu...ing-fonts.html
- freetype http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=343670
- copy over all segoe*, calabra* and tahoma* fonts from Windows
- cloned firefox 2 font settings of Windows into here in Ubuntu
- I have gtk2-engines-pixbuf enabled by Ubuntu's default (double checked via synaptic)
Notice text is getting bolded too much and somehow larger in linux? Why?
Also, Vista is nice and bright. Linux is somewhat "flat" in contrast. Not horrible, but just not as nicely bright for some reason. How would I corrrect this? How do I make sure my card settings is set to 32bit color depth too?
Keep in mind I'm new to linux!
