The red text doesn't actually exist yet as pixels! What you are seeing is the GIMP path created when you select "Text to Path." To make the text appear, click on an image layer (not the layer with your text box). Then go to the Paths panel and click on the path named after your text. Then select Edit | Stroke Path or hit the swirly+paintbrush at the ...

As it turns out, the cygwin fontconfig package does not, by default, inherit the Windows fonts. I have fixed this by symlinking the C:\Windows\Fonts folder to one of the fontconfig folders and updating the font cache as follows: $ ln -s /cygdrive/c/Windows/Fonts /usr/share/fonts/win-fonts $ fc-cache Alternatively, the cygwin ports repository contains ...

Missing fonts The system will simply fail to load if the Fonts folder is empty or missing entirely. In Windows XP, for example, you would get this error: Windows could not start because the following file is missing or corrupt: \WINDOWS\SYSTEM\vgaoem.fon You can attempt to repair this file by starting Windows Setup using the original Setup CD-ROM. Select ...

You can't. Doing so requires the use of a fixed-width font, and there's no way to force that on Facebook or Twitter clients. You also can't make use of HTML <TABLE>s, either, since there's no provision for specifying/entering them.

The table is misaligned because it requires mono-spacing. Mono-spaced fonts are not used by Twitter and Facebook, but you may be able to replace the text with corresponding unicode fixed-width characters. This is not technically mono-spaced, characters are not necessarily positioned in alignment with a fixed grid and to my knowledge, there is no fullwidth ...

I highly suspect that this is a hardware conflict with DirectWrite which was introduce in Chrome version 37. I would try and disable DirectWrite to see if that makes any difference. I have provided Pankaj's answer below as a reference In order to disable DirectWrite. Go to address bar and type chrome://flags/#disable-direct-write. There you ...

This is a common problem with browsers on Windows. When sites specify Helvetica as the first font in their CSS "font-family" stanza Windows uses whatever first Helvetica font it can find to render the page. I've often had to fix this in IE for customers and the solution was always to delete all Helvetica fonts, or use another browser if the customer ...

If google says "no", the answer must be "no", right? But… what about creating it yourself with lokaltog's powerline-fontpatcher? After all, that's what everybody did before he made that font pack available.

According to XLoadFont documentation, a query with '*' should return any matching Font. ltrace dumps calls to libraries into stderr. If you compare ltrace outputs for a correct and a failed execution, you should guess what font has been used from the working system. An option is also to compare output of xlsfonts and fc-list commands. In case of doubt, ...

What font are you using? You may need to install the powerline fonts. Alternatively you can hide the separators. " Don't show seperators let g:airline_left_sep='' let g:airline_right_sep=''

Perhaps your zoom settings are set higher than default (100%)? Have you tried Ctrl+0 to reset this?

For now, there are two workarounds, but no real possibility to set the subpixel rendering to BGR. Go to chrome://flags and set the flags stated below to the specified values. Disable DirectWrite completely and use the old GDI drawing methods.You can completely disable the new rendering method and use the old one as in pre-36.Disable DirectWrite: set it to ...

You appear to be running into a Chrome 37 bug with Linux font rendering that likely is caused by them updating rendering in Windows. It was supposed to have been fixed before release, according to some posts there, but others are clearly saying it wasn't. Multiple suggestions for dealing with this are offered there, including jumping to the 38 beta or ...

As Hassan said, a reinstall of Windows would solve the problem. Installation discs often do not come with a new computer these days but instead you are instructed to make a backup/install discs yourself on the first time use of the computer. If you didn't make those, you would need to buy/get a copy of Windows 7 elsewhere. Buy anyways, here are some links ...

The inability to permanently fix the dafault PowerShell shortcut is a permission/UAC issue; you can configure PowerShell any way you want (bigger/different fonts, Windows size etc.), but the settings will not be saved because, as usual with UAC, you think you have admin privileges, but you don't, and the default PowerShell link is the same for all users, ...
