Ugly kde fonts on archlinux?


i installed kde-base in my archlinux and immediately i noticed the fonts are just WRONG, they look horrible , i guess it's because i installed kde-base?, so what do i have to install? i've had kde installed in other distros and fonts always looked good by default...
please help.
i've tried to change them from system settings but still it doesn't look good. maybe you can tell me how your fonts are configured by default in your system...

i leave a screenshot so you can see what i'm talking about.

Hi, I think that all you need to do is to go to System-settings->Application Appearance->Fonts and enable antialiasing. For cairo, follow http://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/...tched_packages
