How do I enable font anti-aliasing while using the Synthetica Standard theme? I am running 9.03 on Ubuntu 12.04. Screenshot attached.

It appears that Arial is different between systems.

Magnus, I think the difference is rather in the font on the two platforms. If you open a text editor in Linux using the same font does it then look equal to what you see in Windows? Regards Roger

Roger, You are infact correct. Apon looking closer, the text is anti-aliased. However compared to windows, it does look different. I don't know a lot about anti-alias algorithms, but as you can see from the below comparison, the windows anti aliasing apears much smoother.

Magnus, As far as I can tell based on the screenshot the fonts are already anti-aliased. Can you please clarify if I am missing something? Regards Roger
