And what pdf reader do you use? Witk kpdf 0.4 (from KDE 3.4) the artifacts are
not fatal, but really annoying.
In my installation printing to pdf the horizontal distance is right, no
letters overlapped. But some letters are shifted up 2-3 pixels inside the
words. Anyway mine sees better. I have bitstream sans vera as font. I
installed kdeprint and gv packages.
