Printing opensolaris.org Pages with Recent Builds
By mkupfer on Oct 05, 2008
Back in August I upgraded my desktop to snv_95. I sometimes print pages from opensolaris.org to read during my commute, but with snv_95 the pages came out pretty much unreadable. They looked like they had been through several fax transmissions, with blotchy, almost indecipherable characters. At the time I chalked it up to known issues with fonts and went back to running an earlier build (thank you, Live Upgrade).
I revisited the issue last week, after noticing that the headers and footers from Firefox looked okay. It was just the main text that was messed up. I checked my preferences (Content>Fonts&Colors>Advanced)--the checkbox "Allow pages to choose their own fonts" was enabled. I disabled it and tried again, and now the printed pages are legible.
