I have kubuntu 9.04 on a 64bit machine. 
I have a similar problem as above of bad font rendering with okular. 
I need a quite large zoom factor in order to read the text decently. 

With acrobat reader the font rendering can be improved through 
Preferences/Page Display and selecting Smooth Text
for Laptops / LCD screens. In this way the text is much better readable.

Please compare the two screenshots in attachment, that show acroread 
vs okular rendering performances.

Allowing subpixel rendering in KDE 4 System Settings doesn't seem to
do the trick in okular. Any hints?
