Hi, I created MythCenter and intended it to work with the Trebuchet MS
font (part of the ms corefonts). Set your resolution to 800x600 and
MythTV font sizes to default values (small:12,medium:16,large:25). I
didn't set any dpi settings in my xorg.conf, so with all these defaults,
the theme should display fine.
Meanwhile, I am very busy on my thesis, so I hope to find some time to
do the MythCenter 2.0 update. I got some useful input so I know what to
do; please give it a little time.
