    Default Need help to get rid of my headache (fonts etc)

    Hi.

    I need help making OpenSUSE less painful when it comes to fonts etc. I've had daily headache for a while now and I believe it is how OpenSUSE renders fonts.

    I was wondering if anyone had any good ways of making for instance firefox fonts a bit more readable. Browsing this forum makes my eyes want to kill themselves, because of the fonts being so awful.

    Example:
    Flickr Photo Download: fonts firefox

    Basicly it is firefox which is the problem. I have tried to use Konqueror (fonts are 2104812546121 times more readable there) but it didn't work for me. (couldn't make middle mouse button to a scrolling thing so I didn't have to wear out the mouse wheel, and I'm generally more comfortable with firefox).

    Any suggestions on how to make fonts in firefox less headache-y?
    If it's not broken, take it apart and then fix it!

    Oh c'mon!

    Firefox has its own settings-module ('Configure' → 'Settings'? Running a german FF here, sorry...), within the 'content'-tab you'll find options for fonts and colours.

    Also the font size is too small. You can set a minimum size in FF preferences or use the CTRL + (keys CTRL and '+') shortcut to increase font size. There are also the CTRL - (decrease size) and CTRL 0 (reset size) combinations.

    Setting the fonts in Firefox to DejaVu Sans and setting a minimum font size to 12 should give you a smooth setting.

    Have a lot of fun!

    12 and arial usually works out for me.
