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?
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.
If I send an email from, say, Thunderbird, and have "Helvetica/Arial" set as my default outgoing font, then my assumption is that most of the world will read that email in Helvetica (Apple) or Arial (Windows).
But what if I send that email to another Ubuntu user who does not have the MS core fonts installed? What will the email's font default to?
I have a strange problem with one of my Xubuntu 12.04 machines, but not the other. The Liberation fonts are installed on both machines. One machine renders it as expected. The other gives me what looks like Times New Roman, although it claims to be showing me Liberation Serif. I have the problem in both LibreOffice and The Gimp.
