    Lets try to fix the fonts. First install unity tweak tool.
    Code:
    sudo apt-get install unity-tweak-tool
    Open the app, click on the fonts icon and change to your hearts content. I find if you put the fonts on the left side as 10pt, and the ones on the right side as 11pt, it makes for a nice, crisp look.

    Also, adding the libfreetype ppa and updating your computer with it makes them look even better.
    Code:
    sudo add-apt-repository ppa:teppic74/freetype-latest && sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get dist-upgrade
    Don't worry, dist upgrade gives you the latest 13.04 packages, it dosen't upgrade to 13.10 like it suggests in the command.
