Can smeone please tell me where can I find FlashGet for linux? Or some similar program, which can resume broken download.

Also, can someone tell me how can I change and put some nice fonts in FireFox. I'm new with this GUI stuff and alltrough I do not have any experience with GUI (someone will call mee 'oldman' or oldtimer :) ) I relly need to change my FireFox fonts because they sucks. Or this can be some problem with my monitor which is LCD? Is there any option to make 'clear fonts' like in $MS.

thanks in advance.

Under System-> Preferences you can change your font rendering settings...There isn't anything exactly like Microsoft's ClearType, but there is a setting that may look better on LCD monitors. Regarding fonts themselves, you can try looking for any number of guides on how to install the MS Core fonts. I generally use Stanton-Finley's Guide (http://stanton-finley.net/fedora_core_5_installation_notes.html). It was written for Fedora Core 5, but it's still accurate. You can find his instruction's for the MS Core True Type fonts here (http://stanton-finley.net/fedora_core_5_installation_notes.html#True).

Yes, I know this, but I was thinking that there can be some other 'advanced' option that I'm not familiar with...

anyway thanks for your replay.
