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.
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.
