Installing Calibri Font

Recommended Posts

Callisto doesn't render very well, not smooth at all + jagged edges in Ubuntu. Segoe works beauitfully, and idea why? :(

I've always found Segoe UI to be a better font than Calibri. It just looks cleaner and, well, better looking.

Segoe UI, Calibri, Cambria and Consolas are optimised in that way to make it easier to read.

No, I agree, I love Segoe, but I force Opera to render all web fonts in my font, and Segoe ends up being just a touch too large. Calibri is perfect for the web.

Calibri fonts and other cleartype fonts have bitmap versions embedded in them which activate at small sizes, which makes it look bad. To disable this and get correct smoothing at all sizes do this:

Create a .fonts.conf file in your home directory, paste this in it:

<match target="font" >
         <edit name="embeddedbitmap" mode="assign">
             <bool>false</bool>
         </edit>
    </match>

Then save it, log out and back in.
