I'm very new to Ubuntu, as the thread's title. Why the san-serif in Ubuntu is displayed better than san-serif font in Windows?
Especially in website...
I've been using TeXworks 0.4.5 r1280 in Windows 7 and TeXworks 0.5 r952 in Ubuntu 12.04. I like the font on Ubuntu much more than on Windows. It is easier to read and to work with. On Ubuntu this font is called "Serif" in the TeXworks settings:
On Windows, it doesn't exist:
Where can I find this font in some format that I will be able to install and use on Windows 7?
The menu bar in Ubuntu 14.04 LTS Trusty Tahr is in an (unknown) bold serif even though the font has been set to Deja Vu Sans. The search/location bar in Firefox is in the correct font, and the window tabs in Firefox are also in Deja Vu. But the Firefox window title bar is also in the serif font.
I have an old software which use 'MS Sans Serif' font to display text.
While we add some unicode content, this font can't show some of them correctly.
I used font substitution in windows registry to use Tahoma instead of Ms Sans serif. it work correctly in many cases, but some labels which show Bold or italic content, after my register changes, are un-readable now.
On my KDE login screen (Using KDM) and in GTK applications like LibreOffice or IntelliJ IDEA I do not get the Ubuntu fonts I have set up in the KDE system configuration (Fonts) but instead get a jagged and distorted serif font.
I've recently installed Moon+ Reader on my SGS3, and I'm enjoying how customizable it is. My favorite app for articles and shorter fiction is Pocket, and since I adore their article view I've been trying to replicate it in Moon+ Reader. I've come pretty close, except for the font, which I've learned is FF Yoga.
I noticed that every page I visit from Opera except this archlinux website has this horrible monospaced font displayed. I went to the font settings in Opera and switched defaults to sans serif fonts but still this monospaced font is everywhere. I checked author mode and user mode and each mode displays the same font.
