Today i installed fedora 17 on my laptop(Toshiba satellite pro). Its awesome. But two problems persists in that.

  1. Screen brightness settings not saved

    • i tried xbacklight solution and some other described in forum. But none of them worked for me. This problem is the exact reason i changed from ubuntu from fedora. But my bad i cant able to find solution in this too
  2. Font rendering

    • this is also the another problem for me. I dont know how to explain. Fonts are not like in ubuntu.

Please help me to find solution guys.

Please ask these as two separate questions. This makes it so much easier for people in the future to find your question, as we can have meaningful titles for the questions

Asking these as separate questions will help you to get much better (and quicker) answers, but you can do that next time. To answer your questions:

1) If you are using the default Fedora spin with GNOME, you can install this plugin:

2) If by "font rendering", you mean being able to edit the font and font size, try the gnome-tweak-tool (again, requires you to be using GNOME).

Cheers and welcome to Fedora!
