Font quality

Hello @ll,

currently i use SLED 11 (32bit) on my laptop.
I’m getting used to work with it BUT what really annoys me is the display and/or font quality in general !
The resolution quality compared to Windows quality standard is just a nightmare. I tried already to install several fonts, f. e. Tahoma etc., and changed dpi, rendering (LCD) within “Appearance Preferences” but the fonts still look much too pixelized.
So far i couldn’t find a way to get a display quality similar to Windows look.

Did anybody of you guys find a way to improve standard SLED 11 font quality especially reducing this kinda pixelized look ?

Many thx in advance for your help :wink:

Best regards, Ralf

You should post this on the SLED forum found at:

SUSE Linux Enterprise Desktop (SLED)

Make a copy of your windows fonts folder, rename it to MSFonts and copy it to /usr/share/fonts

Then set all your fonts to Liberations sans except the monospace
Reboot
Check your subpixel settings as required

Ideally you should use the correct forum too.
