Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

As you can see, everything on the program is hardly readable. All fonts look crappy!!
This happens in a lot of similar applications (eg GnuCash, xmms, GnomeCard and so on). I am working at a 1280x1024 resolution. Switching back to a lower resolution (any one), fonts are looking fine. I was thinking if there is a way to fix that most annoying situation, considering that half of my applications look like that. Obviously using a lower resolution isn't the better option 'cause it is a bit uncomfortable working with a 20" CRT monitor in a resolution below 1280x1024.
I am using gnome 2.6 exclusively as my default window manager. Of course the same problem exists under KDE. My distro is Mandrake 10.1 Official (Kernel 184.108.40.206-12mdk-smp)
Thank you all in advance for your patience to stop by
I have just realised its a gtk+ (gtk 1 app) using KDE 2 icons. I am not sure how you can change the fonts using gconf. Can't you change the fonts from its own settings option. If not you can use another download manager like gwget which fits in nicely with gnome 2.x desktops because its writtn in gtk2.

Aria was just an example. There are a lot of applications that have the same problem.
