I've been running Fedora 10 64 bit for six months and lately I've noticed that the fonts and overall text is not as sharp as it was. Could some update make a change to clarity? I wouldn't think so, but you never know.

I've tried changing the font settings in Appearance, but it makes no difference. What else can I adjust?

when I originally installed F10 it was sharper than it is now. something change it. How can I get it back to the default clarity that it was when I first installed F10?

With the RPMFusion repo installed do the following:


# yum install freetype-freeworld

This will enable the bytecode interpeter (BCI) and subpixel rendering. These are disabled in Fedora by default. This won't address the difference your seeing between versions of Fedora, but you might like the results. If not simply yum remove it.

I tried it but the terminal did nothing...
