The former community manager for Canonical, Jono Bacon, notes in a very interesting article that it would be a good idea to rebase Ubuntu on Android and be done with it. It might sound like a joke, but it's not.
netbeans on ubuntu font look and feel
location: linuxexchange.com - date: February 27, 2013
is there any chance to make the font in Netbeans 7.3 under ubuntu 12 to look better???
take a look on how the same code looks in eclipse and netbeans
while both IDEs configured with the same editor fonts settings (monospaced), i tried with other fonts also. it seams like netbeans rendering the fonts completely in a different way, the font is much more thinner ? why is it happening ?
i read a lot about that issue and already added the following to the netbeans.conf file
it fixed a little, but still it is a big difference between the both,
did anyone found a proper solution for that problem or maybe one can state here that there is no solution at all ??? i am a new Netbeans user and love this IDE but this thing is driving me crazy ;((
will thank a lot !
(SOLVED) OpenVPN Ubuntu network manager connection ok, but not resolving, not pinging, no internet
location: linuxexchange.com - date: July 17, 2014
I am here after 3 days searching for a solution.
I have set up a openvpn server and I am connecting to it.
When connecting from terminal with
sudo openvpn --config /etc/openvpn/client.conf
it works. I can ping, i can browse and my public ip changes to the of the openvpn server.
But when trying to connect with the network-manager I get a connection, i can ping the server, but I can't browse the internet.
I have come across a lot of pages and one thing is for sure. Network Manager does somehow interfere with the route and dns settings. There are already several bug submissions, but no real workaround.
When I comapred the routing tables with
I got following results:

How to correctly use Ubuntu font
location: linuxexchange.com - date: March 16, 2015
I tried to use the Ubuntu font in my page by adding a link:
<link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="http://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Ubuntu:regular,bold&subset=Latin">
Here is the CSS:
font-family : Ubuntu;
It works but sometimes the font can't recognize slovak characters like "č, ž". These are a different font (not Ubuntu). For example in a mobile sized screen (when I push ctrl+shift+m in firefox = mobile view).
Do you know what the problem is?
Find all file types for Ubuntu font
location: linuxexchange.com - date: May 15, 2015
I need all file types for Ubuntu font (EOT, TTF, EOT, WOFF) for bold, light and regular. I've searched all over the internet, but I have found only TTF download link.
I tried to find them, but there is tons of information about a method for the page to load any type of font, using Google's server, but I need the files to be on my server.
How can I find them?
Change default font to Ubuntu Font from command line in Gnome
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: October 11, 2010
I know that we can change the default font from "Appearance Preferences > Fonts" but I'd like to do it from the command line.
Also, given that the new Ubuntu Font doesn't have a fixed-width font yet, I'd like to do it as follows:
Application font: Ubuntu : 11
Document font: Ubuntu : 11
Desktop font : Ubuntu : 11
Window title font: Ubuntu Bold : 11
Fixed width font : Monospace : 10
Besides enjoying command line configuration, my reason for asking this is I've started making a regularly remastered, redistributable DVD of Ubuntu Lucid with all the updates, etc., and whatever I can do by command line just saves me doing it post-installation.
Thanks to anyone who can help me.

Ubuntu font and software licensing issues?
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: June 21, 2015
Hi, I don't even know which subforum to ask these questions under, so I will try here because it seems to deal with the Ubuntu operating system itself.
1. First, were the default fonts in LibreOffice writer installed by LibreOffice or by Ubuntu?
2. Second, where are the licenses for the fonts that came preinstalled with the Ubuntu operating system (assuming there were in fact such fonts)? I'm currently using 14.04 LTS.
Let me give some background to these questions. Whenever I download a new font, I make sure to check the font's license file to make sure I have permission to use the font for my purposes. Some fonts from sites like Google Fonts are freely usable by everyone. Other fonts require users to pay a license fee before they are allowed to use the font.
Suppose I'm planning to write a book or some other commercial publication. Would it be safe to use the fonts available by default in LibreOffice? I can think of at least 2 possible reasons why they might not be safe. For one,
Change GMail UI Font to Ubuntu font using GreaseMonkey
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: March 20, 2013
Well this is not my code, I just modified what Stefan Koshy wrote to use the Ubuntu font family in the GMail UI.
Thanks to Stefan Koshy for this.
1) Install Greasemonkey for Firefox.
2) Add the following script.
// @name Gmail Font Changer
// @namespace http://skoshy.com
// @description Change Gmail's UI Font
// @include http*://mail.google.com/*
// @version 2013.03.13.13.49
var font = new Array();
font['mono'] = 'Droid Sans Mono';
// CHANGE THIS - This is where you define the font you want to use! Make sure the name is the name of the font and the url points to a valid font css file
//font['name'] = 'Source Sans Pro';
//font['url'] = 'http://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Source+Sans+Pro:400,700,400italic,700italic';
font['name'] = 'Ubuntu';
font['url'] = 'http://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Ubuntu:regular,bold&subset=Latin';
Announce: Font Manager

My wife was tired of cluttered Gimp font selection boxes, so I wrote a program to set up a fontconfig blacklist to reduce the clutter.
