    Gnome/XfFREE

    I have nvidia geforce 2 (generic). I downloaded latest drivers from nvidia
    website and everythin is awesome. When i restart my computer i get nvidia
    splash image. The only problem is that when i log out and log back in my
    fonts look a little weird and not sharp. If i restart the computer my
    fonts look good and normal. Oh yeah i use Gnome 2. I uploaded screenshots
    so you can see and compare:
    http://mysubprofile.com/peax/images/...reenshot-1.png <this is normal screen http://mysubprofile.com/peax/images/...reenshot-2.png <this is not that good
    i can really see the diffence when i open up gnome menu. But you can see
    that font is weird if you look at the clock.

    What happens if you just restart X? Do you get the same results as restarting the computer? the difference we are seeing is that one is using anti-aliasing and the other is not. check /var/log/messages for anything out of the ordinary. also there is a log for X, but i don't remember where it is at the moment(i am not on my PC), but i think it is something like /var/log/xfree86.0.log

    Great, let me know if you find anything out of the ordinanry. particularly check the sections where X is loading and when the system is getting booted.


    Goodluck,

    when you log out and then back in, are you the same user? if not, i am not sure what else it could be aside from being an nvidiot glitch
