Horrible fonts used for Google Earth

Asked by Tim Cuthbertson on 2011-08-19

I have a "vanilla" installation (no PPA's, etc) of Oneiric AMD-64. I have to use Unity 2D because I cannot get fglrx to work with regular Unity 3D. Yesterday, I installed Google Earth 64-bit. It works fine, but all of the fonts displayed in it are awful. Is this something I should open a bug on?

I have a screenshot, but I cannot see a way to attach it to this question.

Thanks,
Tim

Solution found in Google Earth support: install Microsoft TrueType fonts. Ugh.

Just curious: what font was displayed? Attach a external link.

I don't know exactly what font it was. The first post in this thread has a screenshot of it:
