Improving the look of fonts in Linux


Just save the following code, with the name- ‘.fonts.conf’ and put it in your Ubuntu home-page , i.e, the home page of a particular user. Don’t forget the period(full-stop) before ‘fonts’ in the name of that file!
The code is-

<?xml version="1.0"?>
<!DOCTYPE fontconfig SYSTEM "fonts.dtd">
<fontconfig>
<match target="font">
<edit name="autohint" mode="assign">
<bool>true</bool>
</edit>
</match>
</fontconfig>

  1. ABC, its not ‘Ubandu’ its ‘Ubuntu’.. Also adding pics will increase loading time of the blog… But i’ll add pics, wherever it is absolutely reqd…. Nd hw am i gonna make the blog interactive… Its just an information blog, so no scope for interaction; isn’t it…I’ll surely happily add more details nd features of Ubuntu, bt pls note tat its not jst another Ubuntu blog, it has bigger aims, such as more wide coverage of open-source technologies.Thanks for the opinions, please continue giving valuable opinions….
