     I'm using Kubuntu 11.04.  I ran updates yesterday which updated KDE 
to 4.6.5.  After the updates, my system fonts are ugly.  They are 
particularly noticeable in Thunderbird where the message lists and 
folder lists are almost unreadable.

     Under System Settings -> Common Appearance and Behavior -> 
Application Appearance -> Fonts, I have the Ubuntu font set for 
everything other than fixed width which is set to Monospace.  For System 
Settings -> Common Appearance and Behavior -> GTK+ Appearance, I have 
"Use my KDE fonts..".  I can't remember for sure but I think the setting 
are the same as I had before the upgrade.  I've tried changing fonts but 
it doesn't seem to have any effect.

     Any ideas?
