 Regarding the fonts...
Author: Konstantinos Konstantinidis

It seems like something awfully wrong happened after you installed the extra fonts - the screenshots look horrid. Have you tweaked the font settings?

I'm not using KDE, but I am using exclusively webfonts on my desktop with windowmaker & gtk/gtkstep.

Could it be that it picks by default the mozilla fonts which are really designed to work around Netscape's problems?

If you don't plan to use netscape, I suggest you don't install netscape and build webfonts without the netscape aliases...


PS - here's my font path, give it a try, and try using arial or verdana for widgets, they look really nice on screen even at very small sizes:

FontPath "/usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/webfonts/"
FontPath "/usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/freefont/"
FontPath "/usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/sharefont/"
FontPath "/usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/misc/"
FontPath "/usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/Type1/"
FontPath "/usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/Speedo/"
FontPath "/usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/CID/"
FontPath "/usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/75dpi/"
FontPath "/usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/100dpi/"
