    EDIT: Just realized right as a I pressed submit that I"m in the wrong forum. Mods feel free to move to the Theme forums!.


    I'm not having much luck in finding a good replacement font that actually looks good and it usable (readable!) in most cases. I've spent a lot of time at dafont.com testing out many different fonts to replace droidsans and droidsans-bold. I'm specifically looking for something that is visually compatible with the Cashmere and Khaki clock skin in Beautiful Widgets. (not my screen shot, just an example)

    Anyone happy with their replacement fonts?

    Thanks.

    Not my screenshot, but you can accomplish that by using an alternate luancher like LauncherPro or ADW Launcher, then customizing the icons. I prefer LauncherPro, myself. Root not required.

    lyam.. try the font in that link you just posted for the icons. Perhaps you find your own answer by helping someone else?.. that would be ironic.

    Funny, because after I posted that, I saw that font and installed it. Trying it out now. Not bad, but still not quite right. :)

    Watching. . .

    I'm at work now, but tomorrow morning at the latest I'll post the one I've been using and haven't seen it since I got it with one of the first dark se/24k themes.
