Linux KDE Desktop Fonts problem: edges of curves in fonts

Recently I switched my Linux Desktop from Gnome to KDE. For some weird reason my keyboard was not functioning at all under Gnome so I thought just switch to KDE. My keyboard works very well under KDE but poor font quality was my problem. The edges of curves fonts were not smooth at all.

KDE poor font quality

After looking at control panel, I found something called Use anti-aliasing for fonts option turned off. You need to turn on this option. Click on K button > Control center > Select Index tab > Select Appearance & Themes > Fonts > Select option Use anti-aliasing for fonts > Click apply:

KDE Use anti-aliasing for fonts

Now my font edges of curve in fonts are smooth and I can enjoy KDE.

    Rohan,

    Thanks for pointing out, at the movement anti-aliasing for fonts working great 🙂

    I may try it sometime later or may be it is time to switch to Mac OS X 😉

    Vivek,

    I just now solved that problem, thanks to your tip. Thank you so much! One of the last few vexing problems in Debian has been solved for me. (The last is getting a higher screen resolution. I’m stuck at 800×600 for now).
    This is great.
