Many thanks for your fast response - I was not able to identify a 
section which describes "bitmapped fonts" - therefore I did a 
"dpkg-reconfigure fontconfig". The Installation-dialog asks me about
activateing bitmapped-fonts and I answered this positively.

After that I restarted my xserver - but the problem still occures.

"The "fixed width"-fonts are looking ugly blurred, and are closly to be
unreadable.If I try to change to another "fixed width" font in the kontrolcenter
I only have one font named "fixed" in my font-selection."

My Configuration currently looks like this:
<?xml version="1.0"?>
<!DOCTYPE fontconfig SYSTEM "fonts.dtd">
  <include ignore_missing="yes">/var/lib/defoma/fontconfig.d/fonts.conf</include>
<!-- Uncomment below to enable subpixel rendering -->
  <match target="font">
    <test qual="all" name="rgba">
    <edit name="rgba" mode="assign"><const>rgb</const></edit>
  <match target="font">
    <edit name="autohint" mode="assign">

Best regards
