Getting Consolas on Linux to render like Windows

Getting Consolas on Linux to render like Windows

Postby bmh on Sun Oct 23, 2011 11:37 am

I'm trying to get Consolas on Linux to render identically to the way it does on Windows.

Does anybody here have experience in getting linux font rendering to more closely match that of Windows?

My specific pain point is that Consolas at 10pt on linux is taller than on Windows.

I'm running Ubuntu 11.10 with Unity.

Thanks,
Ben

IMHO font rendering in linux works slightly better than windows, btw try setting it to 9pt:

My bad -- you're right.
9pt on Linux is actually very close to Windows 10pt, and it does indeed look fine.

Thanks.
