Thanks for your reply, the quote of which I have edited as much as
On installation, SUSE loads the special L1510S driver - GSM LG
ELECTRONICS FLATRON L1510S, which has the settings of 1024x768 @
73Hz. Using the "nv" driver, I have tried all the different hinting
settings and altered the dpi. No luck!
Then I repeated everything, setting the monitor to use the generic LCD
driver, but at 60Hz. Anything above 60, gave me an "out of range"
error message. Same!
Next was a repeat of everything using the standard VESA, trying
settings of 1024x768 at 75Hz, 70Hz and 60Hz. No!
I then installed the NVIDIA driver from the NVIDIA site, using YaST,
and repeated all I had done with the nv driver. The fonts still
looked bad. (Fuzzy edges and the loops in "e" and "a" filled in).
So, I will have to keep trying.
As I wrote to Bandipat, I use (or have tried), several other distros,
and SUSE is the only one which gives me font trouble.
I wonder if version 10 has better fonts?
