Fedora 15 font problem.

Post  DoomsdayGod on Sat Jun 18, 2011 6:40 pm

I'm not sure if this a Gnome-Shell issue only or not but the Fonts strain my eyes. I used Gnome Tweek to mess around with the font settings such as anti-aliasing and different font types. I even install Times New Romans but the text is small under the icons in the dash and on webpages the letter W's middle is blurred out with anti-aliasing and then without it the text is jagged.

I no longer have it installed so no screenshots sorry. Just wondering if anyone else was having that issue with fonts no matter what font type it was it still was a strain to look at it. I had the correct graphics driver installed too.

Does this help at all?

Also might be able to find some threads in the Fedora Forum, because from memory Fedora is infamous for it's crappy out of the box fonts and font rendering and quite a few people have complained over time.

Don't know if this will work for you, but if you have an LCD screen you may want to try this:

I followed that guide and it worked rather well for me.
