Make sure you have antialiasing enabled in font control panel.

Also, try running fc-cache in case something went wrong with fontconfig, and check config files on /etc/fonts if you are using fontconfig.

Thanks, I already tried fc-cache with no result. I did manage to fix it this morning by removing every kde* package as well as quanta and qt. then re-installing them. Hope this helps someone else...I am removing the screenshot from my server now. Thanks
