I have installed Debian Squeeze AMD64 on my home desktop recently.
Until now I was using Fedora KDE. I am facing few issues with Debian
installation and need your advise in fixing them. I am using GNOME as
my DE and I use NVIDIA Georce 7100/nForce 630i mother board. RAM is
around 4 GB DDR2 and processor is intel core2 duo 2.7 Ghz. Monitor is
LG Flatron W1642S LCD.
1. The font rendering is quite awkward. The fonts (every font) look
very thin and straining eyes. Especially in Iceweasel, Chromium & open
office documents the font display is quite poor. I tried tweaking the
settings in Appearance preferences->Fonts. I experimented with
sub-pixel smoothing etc. But no noticeble improvement was achieved.
I wanted to achieve font rendering similar to fedora or ubuntu.
I had similar problems recently, when upgrading to squeeze. In my case it
turned out the X server was running the monitor at the wrong resolution. For
some reason it had not caused problems with lenny. Check your monitor
documentation and make sure you are running it at the preferred resolution.
Are you using KDE with Debian?
Never mind. I see above that you say you are using Gnome.
