Subject description: Horrible fonts, cannot be changed in settings
 

Hi everyone,
I'm running Fluxpup and on every version of Opera 11 I've tried including beta .pet files and the .tar.gz released by Opera today, I get a horrible, eye-hurting, small font.

This does not happen on my other installed browsers including Opera 10. I've checked font settings are identical on my two Opera versions and I've played with font settings in Opera 11's menu to no avail.

Pictures of my (good) Opera 10 and (bad) Opera 11 fonts are below.
I recall Puppy Firefox users having font problems that were solved by tinkering with a config file.
I should also note that I'm using the new Opera in a separate folder, not the /usr/bin folder (I don't want to do that until this problem is cleared up) could that have an affect?

Can anyone offer a remedy?

Any advice is welcome. Have a great Christmas everyone!
Greg

Try loading this fonting package and see if it helps:

(restart X to take effect)

If still too small, go to

Tools -> Preferences -> Advanced -> Fonts
or
Menu -> Settings -> Preferences -> Advanced -> Fonts

and adjust the minimum size.

The PET is no longer there!

Is there a new link for it?

Hi

One can also quickly zoom font size by using the slider bar that's located at the bottom right edge of the page.

HTH - regards - Ray

Thanks for the pet - it worked nicely for me (on most web pages anyway - some still look as if they are super-condensed; eg; a google search page. I wonder exactly what the pet changes...?)

However, small problem - the download link creates a gz file, which, when unzipped, creates a file that does nothing. Instead of unzipping the .gz file, it is necessary to remove the .gz suffix, and replace it with .pet

I also had to go into Tools, Preferences, Advanced, Fonts and change the "minimum font size" to 12 to suit my netbook width.

Also, my font is still not perfect - the angled parts of the letter "k" seem washed out and hard to read - but I will experiment further and post back if I find out how to improve it. (Might be something to do with "hinting" setup, but I don't know how to adjust that yet).

At least the pet is a massive improvement.

Nice tip Ray - it zooms the whole page really quickly and smoothly - quite useful for getting a closeup view of any pic or text on the page. Quite neat.
