You can just use the ubuntu font which has a perfect view in my opinion and also with an extension of google chrome a mac like smooth view also happens in ubuntu maverick meerkat.

You can install it with via ppa adding these command to the terminal ; and also dont forget to add font extension to the chrome.


sudo add-apt-repository ppa:webupd8team/ubuntu-font-family
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install ttf-ubuntu-font-family

Before upgrading, i only recommend, removing macbuntu, because the only problem was with it, i could not uninstall it from the script, but this is not a big problem, you can set up 2.3 version directly from the Moreover, about this problem, some problem occurs at the compiz minimize effect, it does not seem like mac minimize effect. I shut down the animations and activate minimize&maximize effect and it worked than the lucid.

I used the offical web to use the way to upgrade and it is easy to move on, like this;

  1. Open Software Sources (System → Administration → Software Sources) and select the Updates tab.
  2. Under Release upgrade, make sure that Normal releases is selected and click Close.
  3. Open the Update Manager (System → Administration → Update Manager), click Check and enter your password if prompted. Wait for the list of available updates to be downloaded.
  4. If a new version of Ubuntu is available, a box at the top of the window will appear saying that a new distribution release is available.
  5. To upgrade to the latest release, save all of your open documents and click the Upgrade button in the Update Manager.

When you get an error about these like;

W: GPG error: lucid Release: The following signatures couldn’t be verified because the public key is not available: NO_PUBKEY XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX

(X’s are characters in the lines), put these lines to the terminal;

gpg --keyserver --recv XXXXXXXX

gpg --export --armor XXXXXXXX | sudo apt-key add -

Monitor Resolution Correction

Leave a comment

If you connect your laptop or netbook to a monitor in ubuntu, resolution may be in lower rift, but you can correct this value by typing

xrandr –output VGA1 –auto
xrandr –output LVDS1 –off –output VGA1 –mode 1152×864 (Example)
xrandr –output LVDS1–off –output VGA1 –mode 1280×1024 (Example)

So you can reach the correct resolution to solve this problem in an easy manner.
