Now that my system is operational again, I need to make it more usable. And easier on my eyes.
I'm running mozilla-firefox on fluxbox-devel. In firefox, I set the minimum font size from "none" to "14", and in fluxbox I turned on anti-aliasing. It looks better than it did, but i think it could look a lot better. My screen is a flatpanel set at 1024x768.
I did a "fluxbox -info" and XFT is enabled.
If I change to xfce4, will the fonts look better?
I use Fluxbox and Mozilla Firefox. You can try this:
'pacman -S ttf-ms-fonts'
That made fonts look much better, at least for me. Yeah, yeah, they're Microsoft fonts, but I don't care.
Arch 0.6 - Kernel 2.6.5 - Fluxbox 0.9.8
Fluxbox fonts are independent of the firefox fonts, firefox has it's own font settings somewhere in it's options.
See () regarding Monitors and in particular 'DisplaySize'.
This affects _all_ fonts not handled by the window manager.
i.e. my 1024x768 LCD is 85-dpi x 85-dpi
This fixes the general look/size of the fonts
