Default xubuntu, 800x600 display: fonts ugly

Hi,
Maybe this will help, replace your screen section with the one I made, I just added more resolution presets, you can add yours as you like -> Modes * * * * * "800x600" "1024x768" "1280*1024"



Section "Screen"

* * * *Identifier * * *"Default Screen"

* * * *Device * * * * *"Generic Video Card"

* * * *Monitor * * * * "70H"

* * * *DefaultDepth * *24

* * * *SubSection "Display"

* * * * * * * *Modes * * * * * "800x600" "1024x768" "1280*1024"

* * * *EndSubSection

EndSection

(it an XFCE desktop, the one in Ubuntu 7.10)

I have those font installed:

* * ttf-freefont

* * ttf-indic-fonts-core

* * ttf-malayalam-fonts

* * ttf-mgopen

* * ttf-thai-tlwg

* * xfonts-100dpi

* * xfonts-75dpi

* * xfonts-base

* * xfonts-encodings

* * xfonts-scalable

* * xfonts-utils

* * xfontsel

* * xlsfonts



I join you my xorg.conf.

I think I have not installed the needed fonts, but would need a bit of your help in order to know the right thing to do.

Thank you.

Without testing, it wont help:
- those "modes" are a list of the supported resolution of the screen
- you put a '*' instead of a 'x' in the last mode

Anyway, I really thank you for your suggestion.
