One issue that was bugging me for a while was the different font size (after adjusting it) on couple applications (including Adept) under my fresh installation of Kubuntu Interpid. After investigating and Google-ing I found out that it was due to running those proccesses as “root” which had different fonts and GTK+ settings.
$ kdesudo systemsettings
After running the command above setup the font size as you like it. Working as normal user is something new to me and I’m not sure I like. Needing to write my pass to many times and having to chown my old files is just not that pleasant.
With Vista released Microsoft replaced the “Standard Web Fonts” with the so cold “C fonts” – Cambria, Calibri, Candara, Consolas, Constantia, and Corbel. To take advantage of them (if available on the user’s computer) you can use the following font-family CSS definitions.
font-family: Helvetica, Calibri, Arial, sans-serif; /* or */
font-family: Corbel, Verdana, "Bitstream Vera Sans", sans-serif; /* or */
font-family: Candara, "Trebuchet MS", Trebuchet, sans-serif; /* or */
font-family: Cambria, "Times New Roman", Times, serif; /* or */
font-family: Constantia, "Palatino Linotype", Palatino, Georgia, serif; /* or */
font-family: Consolas, "Bitstream Vera Sans Mono", "Courier New", Courier, monospace;
If you don’t have the “C” fonts you can download and install Microsoft’s Powerpoint Viewer 2007 which contains them.
