Sun Java 5 Fonts

If you fiddle a bit with Synaptic you'll notice that the Sun Java 5 JRE/JDK has a package called sun-java5-fonts. What this package basically does is install the fonts (which are normally exclusively accessible by Java itself) and make them available to defoma. The Sun Java 5 Fonts package contains Lucida Bright, Lucida Sans and Lucida Typewriter. After installing these fonts, try visiting Slashdot again, it looks stunning!

UPDATE: You might need to run 'sudo fc-cache -v' to update your font cache.
