NetBSD: pretty fonts
I've finally gotten my NetBSD 4.0 laptop set up with a font situation that I am satisfied with -- I thought the solution would be worth sharing. This may be a no-brainer to some of you; but hopefully new NetBSD users will find it useful.
Installing Red Hat's Liberation fonts from pkgsrc has transformed my firefox web browsing from a hideous, semi-legible mess to a rather pleasant experience.
If you'd like to set this up as well, simply follow the steps here:
Except instead of using fonts/ms-ttf, of course, use fonts/liberation-ttf.
I've attached a preview screenshot with a cropped post excerpt from our favorite forum. (I wish I had taken a 'before' photo. It looked terrible.)
Kill your t.v.
