Ubuntu – How to enable sub pixel hinting


Fonts are displayed a little bit blurry on my TFT screen. I fixed this in previous Ubuntu releases by enabling sub pixel hinting in the font settings. But now I can't find any font settings dialog in Unity. How can I enable sub pixel hinting or change the font family or font size? Where is all this stuff?

Welcome to the new no-user-serviceable-parts-inside Ubuntu/Gnome.

Install gnome-tweak-tool (sudo apt-get install gnome-tweak-tool) and run it (it's called "Advanced Settings"). The font settings are in the Fonts tab.
