I have Google Chrome installed on Ubuntu and I have made a number of folders of bookmarks placed within my bookmark bar. The problem is that some of the folder's names are abbreviated like "Ru---" for "Ruby". This is kind of annoying when I have more than one folder that starts with "Ru". Also, my bookmark bar is not completely full, so there is plenty of space for these names to show. Anyone know how to fix this?
I found that this was a problem caused by some preferences in the Gnome Desktop environment. Using the Gnome Tweak Tool, go to the sections called "Fonts". There is an option there called "Hinting". "Hinting" wiki. I changed it from "Slight", which was the default for me, to "None".
