Ever wanted to have smooth and nice fonts in Linux? Well, there are few things that you can do.
I tried these steps on Debian Lenny (Testing) and they did make the fonts smooth and readable. But I must admit my fonts looks good but not as good as in Windows Vista but far better than in Windows XP.
1 - Install Microsoft True Type Fonts
# aptitude install msttcorefonts
This will install the following true-type fonts into your system.
