Earlier today we posted a short guide on fixing Google Earth's infamous 'ugly fonts' issue when running under Ubuntu. In the comments to that post a reader, Daniele80, pointed us in the direction of a hack that enables Google Earth to look 'native' under Ubuntu. Be warned: the following guide isn't for the fainthearted or the inexperienced. If things go wrong just reinstall Google Earth using the .Deb installer from Google's website and start again.
Google Earth 6.2 was released last week with improved imagery, Google+ integration and improvements to search. Sadly one thing wasn't fixed: the infamous 'font issue' in Linux. Inside you'll learn how to fix it with a few clicks.
Solving minor issues in Ubuntu just got easier with the launch of '?YeoWorks Ubuntu Solutions' - a small application that provides one-click 'solutions' for a raft of Ubuntu bugs, flaws and annoyances.
