My guess is that the setting for anti-aliasing of fonts is turned off
somewhere. Do other GTK based apps on your system also have the jagged
look? Since you are using KDE for the desktop environment then there is
probably a panel in the Control Center with settings for GTK Styles and
Fonts, and also the main Fonts panel will have an option for whether
anti-aliasing should be used.
