Am I able to use all my Windows fonts in Linux? If so, can I just move 'em over?
The YaST Font Installer doesn't seem to work. I installed Verdana, and it's not there.

Thanks for that.
Also, any idea why my fonts look like this?
They're pretty small, and even when they're not, they aren't as smooth or as crisp as they were in Windows. I've no idea why. I don't have 3D rendering, however I doubt this is the cause? My graphics card was picked up fine. I've a TFT monitor since it's my laptop, which I set to LCD at the correct size of 1024*768.

Fonts were a problem on linux for a long while, but now thats been 99 percent resolved, try setting to a differnt default, sometimes the default gets switch b/c the default couln't be found. Then you end up with some random odd font that doesn't get displayed well, or just doesn't look good.

It's all either SuSE Sans or Sans Serif.
I've switched some to Verdana, but it's still not as CRISP as in Windows. I'd really like Verdana basically because I'm used to it, but it isn't as crisp as in Windows so that's why I'm sticking to SuSE Sans and Sans Serif.
Any idea how I can get Verdana to be crisp?
And also, why is it SOO small in that pic? It's not that small now when I'm typing here..

Like i said, some fonts will just never look the same. M$ doesn't release the algorithms they use to display thier fonts. Basicaly, someone had to backword engineer it, and support is pretty good i think, but its just not identical.
(this is what i think, i could be 110% wrong)

Ok thanks for that. Well, the way the fonts look is ok. I can handle that - I've actually decided I very much like DEC Terminal. SuSE Sans is very nice as well though.
My major problem is, why is the text soo small in that text box? Is it my problem? Or the problem with the script?
If it's my problem, how can I fix it?

I checked. The fonts are perfectly fine in Konqueror, I've no problems with tiny fonts thankfully there. But I don't really want to use Konq; nor do I really want to use FireFox.
Konq because, I dunno, I just don't like it much. Not firefox as Java won't work.
I tried in Opera 7.23, and again the same problems as Firefox.
Any help is much appreciated!
