What distro? I fixed it with;
/home/yourname/.fonts.conf I use xorg
Code:
<?xml version="1.0"?>
 <!DOCTYPE fontconfig SYSTEM "fonts.dtd">
 <!-- /etc/fonts.conf file to configure system font access -->
 <fontconfig> 
 
 <!--  Enable sub-pixel rendering 
         <match target="font">
                 <test qual="all" name="rgba">
                         <const>unknown</const>
                 </test>
                 <edit name="rgba" mode="assign"><const>rgb</const></edit>
         </match>
  
  -->
  
 <!-- Autohint fonts
         <match target="font">
                 <edit name="autohint" mode="assign"><bool>true</bool> </edit>
         </match>
 -->
 
 <!-- Antialias --> 
 
 <match target="font">
         <test qual="any" name="size" compare="more">
                 <double>8</double>
         </test>
         <test qual="any" name="size" compare="less">
                 <double>15</double>
         </test>
         <edit name="antialias" mode="assign">
                 <bool>true</bool>
         </edit>
 </match> 
 
 </fontconfig>
