I use Mathematica 10 for Linux with my monitor rotated 90-degrees.

Fonts in all applications look very good (I have configured Gnome and Xft to do subpixel antialiasing in "vertical RGB" order). But fonts in Mathematica look very poor. Here's an example:

blurry fonts

Note the purple, green, and yellow around the text.

Any ideas on how to fix this?

  • $\begingroup$ Ugly. What happens if you set font opacity to 0.999? In the case of (18988) that triggered a different (plain) AA method. It might at least look a bit better. $\endgroup$ – Mr.Wizard Jan 12 '15 at 22:53
  • $\begingroup$ How do I change the opacity of the fonts used by the Mathematica notebook? $\endgroup$ – scaramouche Jan 13 '15 at 3:47
  • $\begingroup$ One should be able to do it with Style Sheets but before we get to that just try it on a sample with: Style["Sample Text", FontOpacity -> 0.999] and see if it helps. $\endgroup$ – Mr.Wizard Jan 13 '15 at 11:40
