Adding a Broadband Modem to the Ubuntu network manager
location: linuxquestions.com - date: May 1, 2009
I am nearing the end of my fight to make my Cricket A600 work natively on Ubuntu...
Last step, how do I go about adding my modem to the ones the network manager will detect? It does not offer a "cricket wireless" option by default when I go to "add broadband connection". I have both the Product ID and Vendor ID of my modem. Where do I need to go to add these so my modem will work?

Any Current Ports of Ubuntu Font Patches Available?
location: linuxquestions.com - date: May 7, 2014
I used Slackware in Ye Olden Days and then moved on to other destinations, mostly Fedora and Ubuntu. I'm currently using Mate 1.8 built on an install from Ubuntu 14.04's mini.iso because the font rendering is the best in class.
Thinking about returning to Slackware *if* I can duplicate current Ubuntu font rendering.
I suppose I could apply Ubuntu's patches and build freetype, fontconfig and cairo for myself. I've done that re: Debian.
Sure would be easier, though, if someone else had already done it. Or, if I could find a slackbuild to get it done. The patches and a PkgBuild script are available at the Arch AUR. Converting that to a slackbuild ought not to be terribly difficult. But, since I've been out of the water for some time, I'm hoping there's an easy way out there waiting to be downloaded.
I know about and have used Infinality and assorted other tweaks. I prefer the current Ubuntu look.
Font Manager not showing complete font family
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: January 9, 2013
I'm running 12.10 amd64 and have font-manager 0.5.7-4 from universe installed. The Adobe font family Myriad Pro (opentype format) is installed in my ~/.fonts folder. The fonts are all visible and useable in Libreoffice writer - Myriad Pro, Myriad Pro Black, Myriad Pro Black Condensed, Myriad Pro Condensed, Myriad Pro Light, Myriad Pro Light Condensed, and gnome-font-viewer shows them all, but Font Manager only shows Myriad Pro as existing in Bold, Bold Italic, Italic, and Regular. I have a couple of other Adobe font families installed in ~/.fonts - Caslon Pro and Jenson Pro - and font manager shows the complete font families for both of those ok.
I've attached a couple of screen shots of the font viewer and font manager windows.

Ubuntu font rendering patches
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: April 25, 2014
I hope this is the correct section of the forums for this question. I am trying to duplicate Ubuntu font rendering on other distros (Fedora, OpenSUSE). As far as I understood, Ubuntu patched some libraries, and to match the font rendering on other systems you had to patch those libraries (libfreetype, fontconfig, cairo), using the Ubuntu patches.
However, I read in this thread:
that Ubuntu does not patch any library any more and it is just a matter of configuration.. Can anyone confirm this?
This would mean that as long as the library versions match the ones used in Ubuntu, I should be able to get the same rendering just by altering the configuration. Is that right?
Please do not hesitate to become technical in the answer. I am a programmer and I have vast experience with modifying and packaging software...
Font Manager error
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: October 2, 2010
Font Manager does not start for me. This is what I get at the CLI:
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "/usr/bin/font-manager", line 104, in <module>
File "/usr/bin/font-manager", line 93, in main
from main import Main
File "/usr/share/font-manager/main.py", line 40, in <module>
File "/usr/share/font-manager/core/__init__.py", line 849, in <module>
os.symlink(USER_LIBRARY_DIR, join(USER_FONT_DIR, 'Library'))
OSError: [Errno 1] Operation not permitted
Anyone else seeing this and have a solution?
overstruck font name in GNOME font manager
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: March 17, 2012
What does it mean when the GNOME font manager shows the name of a font in the list labeled "Family" but shows it overstruck and not in boldface? Looking through the font manager help doesn't turn up anything.
