Hello Ubuntu users,

I'm currently on Kubuntu Feisty Fawn (7.04). Since this will soon be
unsupported, I've been trying out the Kubuntu 8.10 LiveCD with KDE4 on

I've found a font display weirdness. I notice that fonts in KDE
applications look different from those in GTK applications (Firefox
and Gimp being the two examples I tried). I took various screenshots
to show the problem, and these are available at the following web

I would like to upgrade to Ibex when it is released, but this font
weirdness will be a showstopper for me. I need to have all my fonts
look uniform, because I spend a lot of time reading on the screen.

Has anyone else seen this font discrepancy in recent (k)ubuntu
versions? And is there a solution?
