Hi, my name is Nigel and I have ugly fonts.
I use gftp and have also installed google earth. Both apps have ugly
(non-anti-aliased?) fonts. To get google earth's fonts readable (they were
very wide spaced and difficult to read) I had to install (from tips from a
google search) Microsoft ttfonts and reboot (I tried to just logout but
something crashed) and now google earth is usable but like gftp it has ugly
Is there a fix?
I just loaded google-earth and it looks fine.
Look at your 'theme' in applications appearance and see which theme you are
using. Then check to see you have what is needed.
For example, I am using the 'oxygen' theme and I have loaded the gtk2-
engines-oxygen piece as well as oxygen-cursor-theme and oxygen-icon-theme.
There are pieces for libreoffice as well.
Yes, I have those too. I did however mess around with the Use KDE Fonts and changed it to
something else. I have now gone back to the default and gftp looks fine but Google Earth still
looks as if the fonts are not anti-aliased.
