    Fonts look awful

    I've just got an LCD monitor, and the fonts on it look absolutely crap. I've tried different kinds, and different methods but no matter what I do, they come out looking bad.
    Can someone recommend some good fonts for me? I'm running Dropline on slack 10.1
    Cheers

    Fonts should look gorgeous on an LCD monitor. Try going System->Preferences->Font and playing around with font rendering.

    remember to use subpixel hinting on TFT displays, it makes a world of difference.

    Thanks guys, with a little fiddling in the settings, then restarting the X server, my fonts are now purdy. Switching to the DVI in as well made a world of difference.
    I dont do anything on this monitor now, just look at words, its so purdy.
