Font rendering in Ubuntu

You can change the way fonts appear on your screen by modifyng the font rendering settings. Simply right-click on your desktop and select “Change Desktop Background”.

Then select the “Fonts ” tab inside “Appearance Preferences”.


From here you can change the font rendering. Personally I prefer “Subpixel smoothing.” You can try the different options available and see which one you like most.
