After removing kde3.2, and installing kde3.3...fonts look bad.

They look horribly now....just....bad. Anyone know why? I used swaret to remove, and install a newer version of kde. Help apreciated. Thanks.

You could just open control center and fix them.

Personally I think Bitstream vera fonts at size 10 are damn sexy.

u must enable antialiasing

go to control center -> appearance & themes -> fonts
then check the "use anti-aliasing for fonts"

then logout and press CTRL+ALT+Backspace to restart the X server then log back in
