Re: What the f**t (font)

LINUX FONTS ARE UGLY! I have said it before, and will say it again, Linux could use some graphical design love, and better fonts and font scaling. Some fundamental linux software is from "freedesktop.org" and it is truly awful, and, judging by the number of posts in this forum, two of their attempt...

Pro Tip! Before you change important system files, make a backup copy!

Code: Select all

It's called the "label". You can use gparted to set it in unmounted partitions.

"It's really because of your font"
Unless you're claiming that there's a font in which the characters are supposed to overlap each other (which font?), like the OP's i in "terminal" rendered in the middle of the m, the problem is because of crummy font software.

Re: Terminal- fixed fontwidth

Thanks, but the problem is the fixed width, the caracters are allmost on top of each other. The spacing on your terminal is a mess. I had the same problem with synaptic (never really solved). Dunno about "Mate", but on other terminals, you change the font like... rt-click on terminal background -> ...

"The server understood the request, but is refusing to fulfill it. Authorization will not help and the request SHOULD NOT be repeated."

I think that means "try again" because https://www.farmandfleet.com/ works fine for me.

Hold control key, press "+" key. "-" key for smaller. Ctrl + zero-key resets. You can also probably set a minimum font size in your browser.

Re: Software Manager in 18.3 Problems

Try Synaptic Package Manager, most users will never use Software Manager again after they learn how to use synaptic. Better yet, use the non-crippled ubuntu version of synaptic; just make sure the versions are the same. It almost seems like the Mint version lost some functionality (updates) to enco...

Re: Installing GIMP plugins from .tar.gz file?

I have watched video after video, trying to understand how to use tar.gz file. There is no set way to "use" it - it's like a .zip file, and could contain anything. If you're lucky there will be some sort of "readme" file in the .tar.gz file. One thing to note about gimp: unlike user-friendly softwa...

Re: posting terminal display to the forum

Note: LEAVE THE TERMINAL OPEN! If you close it, the copy buffer is emptied, unlike windows. Can be an issue with some applications but I'll remark that the default terminal windows with all Mint editions are GTK-based and thus do not have this issue. If I copy text from an xfce4-terminal, then clos...
