Adjusting Fonts in KDE 4 for LCD Screen


Click the image above to watch the video tutorial.

Adusting fonts for sub pixel hinting in openSUSE 11.1 KDE 4.1. I think the Nimbus Sans L font looks best on LCD display, you may have other fonts preferences, but the subpixel hinting should help most fonts to look better on an LCD.

The steps below will help you adjust your font settings.

1) Go to the Application Launcher, under the Favorites tab, select Configure Desktop.

2) When the window opens, click on the Appearance icon.

3) On the left hand side of the window click the Fonts icon.

4) On the right hand side there is a list of fonts and font sizes, start with the first and click the choose button.

5) On the left hand side scroll down untill you fing the Nimbus Sans L font, select it, on the right hand side you can increase or decrease the size of the font. 10 works well for my system and screen resolution, you may choose any size you want.

There are 8 different fonts to adjust each pertaining to a different part of your computer.

General, usually changes the size of the fonts in your file manager

Fixed Width, usually pertains to text documents in your text editor.

Small, are the smallest fonts you will see such as the menu items in the tool bars of applications.

Toolbar, effects similar items as the small font settings.

Menu, the right click menus, and the menu in the Application Launcher

Window Title, changes the the font in the Window decoration.

Taskbar, changes the font in the task bar otherwise known as the panel.

Desktop, changes the fonts you see on your desktop
