How do I get font anti-aliasing to work in KDE?

I have found the checkbox in KControl, but it does nothing.
Anti-aliasing only works if I am logged in as root, but does nothing if I am a normal user.
Is there anyway to get this to work as a normal user?

I believe this is a per-user setting ... did you
tick the box as a normal user as well?

After screwing around with QTconfig, anti-aliasing works. Now I have to figure out how to get rid of the awful colour tinting that comes along with aa.
