I've tried various workarounds, but I haven't yet found a way to make the fonts in Netbeans look right. I've tried changing the config files of Netbeans, and trying the instructions here that don't seem to have any effect since they aren't installed in 13.10.
My specific question has three parts: 1) why is every font 18 or less drawing characters with lines that are only one pixel thick, and the . and : are making only one pixel on the screen – unless I force bold, or a huge font of 19 or more:
(If this is a Java problem, why is Eclipse fine?)
Bad font, thin and not easily readable
Almost okay font – but HUGE:
If you look at the terminal or native Ubuntu apps they don't show up as only one pixel – is there a solution for this?
2) Why does Netbeans show a box at the end of the line, when text is too long and overflows to the next displayed line?
3) Maybe not related, but why do popup-windows of Netbeans have this small dropdown below them? This happens both with the netbeans-starting info window, and the git changes popouts from the bar with the line-numbers.
Ugly git integration showing changes:
No change in 8.0, unfortunately 🙁
