Ubuntu Font Question
location: linuxquestions.com - date: January 8, 2008
I'm dual booting windows xp and ubuntu 7.10.I created a folder /usr/share/fonts/type1/myfonts on my linux side.I copied and pasted all fonts from my windows font directory into this folder.i want to make my fonts in linux look as clear and readable as windows.So i want everything run the same fonts as windows.i read some where that internet explorer uses Times new Roman fonts.Does anyone know the size explorer uses.Also do they use the standard Times new roman or the bold one.Now will my system look to this folder for my fonts.My resolution I run at 1024 x 768.My monitor is a dell E773C.Is 1024 x 768 the highest I can go with this monitor.Also can I up the resolution and make the fonts say a 800 x 600 size.Hope you understand my questions.
Yet Another 'Ubuntu Font Rendering on Debian' Question
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: May 14, 2013
I'm considering a long-term project that will require long-term use of a desktop distribution. Ubuntu's 9-month release cycle looks to be too short for my purposes, and 12.04.02 LTS doesn't offer what I need.
So, I'm looking at Debian. I did a test installation of the new 7 release (Wheezy).
Font rendering, though, is the issue. It is better out of the box than on earlier releases. But, I won't use it unless I can tweak it to duplicate the font rendering on Ubuntu 13.04, which I'm using at the moment.
Now, how to get Ubuntu font rendering on Debian is a perennial question, and not too popular at the Debian forum. But, I have searched high and low and have not found a decent answer.
By "decent", I mean instructions on applying the Ubuntu patches to Debian code. Presumably, Cairo, fontconfig and freetype need to be patched. (I could handle patching source in conventional fashion, but have no experience patching and building debs the 'Debian Way'.)
If those instruct
Apply Ubuntu font rendering in openSUSE

The way fonts look in Ubuntu 10.10 is clean and "normal", and I want to apply the look/style to openSUSE 11.4. For some reason the font is very poor looking non matter what font I try. Is anyone familiar with how to get this done? Thanks

i've been thinking - as far as i understand - ubuntu is the kernel from one source, gnome from another, xorg, apps etc. so basically, everything is made separately and then joined together.
if this is true (or maybe i'm really wrong) why do you need to update (say for 11.04)? i can just get the updates and be happy... get the kernel, get the gnome, everything one by one.
Ubuntu backup question, best practice?
location: linuxquestions.com - date: January 5, 2008
I recently switched from Suse 10.1 to Kubuntu 7.1, went pretty well but I had used a scheduled YaST backup under Suse, I don't see an equivalent in Ubuntu. I researched here in LQ and found this command which I assume I could cron sched: "tar -cvlf slash.tar.gz /" and I see there are a number of high and low level apps.
So, on something as important as backup I'd like to know what you feel the "best practice" is. I don't want to find out I chose the wrong tool for the job months from now when it's too late.
To be specific, I'm talking about providing the ability to recover the *Linux system* from a hard disk crash or other software problem by using my last scheduled backup image. I have multiple computers but no spare hard drives to take a direct disk to disk copy every night. What I was doing under Suse was copying its backup over to another PCs drive (it was about 400 meg) which meant I had enough space to even keep a rolling list of 4 night's worth of b

can anyone explain why the Ubuntu font, when using Gimp at least, flits between a round lower case 'a' and curly one depending on whether it is in italics or not?

I am wondering what is the nearest Equivalent to the Ubuntu Font which would come pre-installed on most computers eg. Georgia, Times etc.
Thanks in advance!
