Very Small Text using Nvidia Drivers in Lubuntu 14.04

I have very small text using nvidia drivers in my new Lubuntu 14.04 install. So small in fact that I couldn’t read anything!

I found an old thread from 2012 that helped point me in the right direction.

Click on Menu then Preferences and then “Customize Look and Feel”

Under the widget tab I changed the default font to a size of 24. After clicking apply it fixed the text in the windows but not the icon text.

I then clicked the font tab and changed the sub-pixel geometry from RGB to BGR. After saving it I have a nice looking screen again.

The problem is I haven’t figured out to keep the saved settings!

Here is that original thread that seemed to be the same issue yet no one was able to give an answer.

Issues with Video Display on Ubuntu 13.10

I wrote a post a month or so ago about getting a black screen with a blinking cursor in the upper left corner.  While that specific situation has occurred at least once since it is happens to all be tied together.

Currently I have a working display in Ubuntu 13.10 but with a default profile.  I have no idea what happened to my old profile.  I must have deleted it or it was corrupted.  I don’t know the answer.  I do know that I have wasted a lot of time on video driver issues.

I have tried so many things that I can’t even begin to tell you what I have or have not tried.  Basically my video system on my ubuntu 13.10 server became hosed after a regular update by Ubuntu.  Since then it seems to work but not all the time.  All I can do is hope that the new 14.04 or whatever the latest LTS release is can fix my issues.  I don’t want to start from scratch again.
