ugly font

when migrate to slack10 from slack9 i notice that my truetype font looks different (openoffice, fluxbox menu, xfontsel, etc)
this is not happen with adobe's font

it is looks like font on this screenshot (taken from other user shoot on this forum (forgot his/her user name, sorry ))

when using slack9 i need to run xfs -daemon and FontPath "tcp/localhost:7100" on my xorg.conf to get my TTF listed on xfontsel
but when using slack10 this is not needed (new feature..??)
although it still not work when using xfs -daemon and FontPath "tcp/localhost:7100" on slack10
