qt4.6.2 fonts are horrible! Running slackware 13.1
I don't know what I did but all my qt4 applications fonts began to look terrible! It just happened out of nowhere after booting my computer and running qmmp. They all look horizontally squashed. I was able to tediously change the fonts in qtconfig to Droid sans mono which helped a little and I can at least make out what words say but it looks bad. They basically have no antialiasing or hinting plus they're squashed. Thankfully qmmp lets me change the font setting. But bsnes and many other apps don't let you change the qt4 fonts...
I've read on numerous problems and solutions to this by editing the ~/.fonts.conf but that doesn't seem to have any effect (I actually had to make it since it didn't exist). Qt4 obviously isn't honoring my global font settings which I change through xfce4 appearance. I've changed the global font settings to different fonts and combinations with no luck in regards to qt4 fonts...
