I had similar problems to this with Korean fonts not long ago. Some
were so fuzzy that short vertical bars would virtually disappear.
Although many people recommended it, running dpkg-reconfigure on
fontconfig didn't help.
I would try opening /etc/fonts/local.conf and uncomment the last
section about autohinting. Restart X and things should be much
sharper. You may need to tweak the gnome font settings to get things
just the way you want them.
