I do have the latest msttcorefonts installed. It just looks crap with

certainly Xmms is the worst of the bunch.

This could also be a problem with your settings for font display rather
than with the fonts themselves. I do not use XMMS, so here is a
demonstration of the influence of font settings on iceweasel (PNG image,
55.6 KB):


Maybe you can post your font settings and we can have a look:

awk '/fontconfig/,/^$/' /var/cache/debconf/config.dat

xrdb -query | grep Xft


Thanks for the image - a picture is worth ... and all that jazz. Certainly, my font display is more like the image on the left.

In response to the awk string:

Name: fontconfig/enable_bitmaps
Template: fontconfig/enable_bitmaps
Value: false
Owners: fontconfig-config
Flags: seen

Name: fontconfig/hinting_type
Template: fontconfig/hinting_type
Value: Autohinter
Owners: fontconfig-config
Flags: seen

Name: fontconfig/subpixel_rendering
Template: fontconfig/subpixel_rendering
Value: Always
Owners: fontconfig-config
Flags: seen

And in response to xrdb -query:

Xft.antialias:  1
Xft.dpi:        120.000000
Xft.hinting:    1
Xft.hintstyle:  hintfull
Xft.rgba:       none

Any use?
