all I can suggest is a search on fonts in Google Groups, particularly
alt.os.linux.mandrake- for posts on font issues; mine look OK (not great)
w/ LM7.2, python2.1-5, AA enabled (of course AA only applies to KDE apps,
but having it enabled seems to cause some probs. for non-kde apps). Also,
try similar search comp.windows.x.kde and:

http://lists.kde.org/

you'll find a ton of posts, hopefully one will apply to your particular
setup- LM ver, vid card, KDE/QT ver, etc. How do fonts look in other
non-kde apps?? Sorry this is best I can do, hope it helps.....
