    Browser fonts ugly after adding KDE to Ubuntu 12.04

    I love Ubuntu's ability to add different desktop options at login. I am, however, disappointed that different desktops can step on one another. Mostly it's been small stuff like the boot screen changing to reflect whatever was the most recent desktop added.

    I usually use Unity and after I logged back into it from a session in KDE in which I examined the appearance settings, the fonts in Firefox, Chrome and Thunderbird are all different and a bit ugly. The system fonts for Unity are fine but these apps appear to have lost anti aliasing. I'm no font expert, but that is my guess. I have verified that Firefox's font settings are all defaults.

    I've uploaded a screen shot of Firefox so hopefully that will work and you can see the problem.

    Can anyone tell me what's happened and what I can do to fix it? This is a 12.04 machine that had no graphic issues before the KDE session.

    My eyes will be grateful for any help.

    Maybe Ubuntu Tweak will help you.
