Make sure you have /etc/fonts/fonts.conf and local.conf setup to find your
fonts then run 'fc-cache -f -v' and make sure it sees your fonts. After
that restart kde and see if your fonts work better. You may need to go into
kcontrol->appearances->fonts and select different ones if it is defaulting
to bad fonts.
