    Fonts in Gentoo


    I just did a lot of work on my fonts on my computer, and I must say, I am impressed with what I have done. My fonts now look a lot better, and better than they did in windows.

    Just follow this: http://gentoo-wiki.com/HOWTO_Xorg_and_Fonts

    Basically this has nothing to do with help, but it does make your install look MUCH better, and easier to read.

    I used parts of that document and my fonts look really cool. I think Gentoo is one of the few Linux distros with very good documentation.

    WOW. I am amazed at how much better everything looks. Firefox got REALLY ugly through that, but it is SO sexy right now.

    Thanks for pointing that out! The documentation's a little outdated, but it's still quite reliable and easy to use.

    I totally agree. I've also used this how-to in the past, and there's just so much usefull information on the wiki.

    The wiki looks cool, as in detail.

    But to put it to use, I'm gonna find time.

    I'm gonna celebrate if firefox really does look better with these font mods.

    This is my Firefox in KDE (I have most of my fonts set to Bitstream Vera Sans because it just looks great. I would also suggest installing "Tahoma". It makes most web sites look as they should.


    And my konqueror which I use more:
