Question font rendering of KDE app in GNOME


Hello,

I usually use KDE base applications like kdevelop etc. in GNome. But even if I set the same font(Sans) in KDE application, they appears ugly. I prefer the font appearance in GNome, (GVim is very comfortable for me, but KDevelop looks very uncomfortable).

How can I let text in KApps looks same as GApps?

Thanks a lot!
Zephyr

Thanks for reply.

Does it mean KDE use different font rendering engine from Gnome's, even for same font name (e.g. serif)?
