Any suggestion?

Make sure the fontconfig cache files are OK:
Code:
fc-cache -rf

Fontconfig 2.10.2 is OK, I don't see a reason to downgrade to 2.9.0 :?

Anyway - something happed, and any website in any browser (Opera, Chromium, Firefox, Konqueror) looks awful now. Maybe there are different anti-aliasing settings? Downgrading fotnconfig did not change anything.


Update

After many probes I think is related to anti-aliasing.

Apart KDE windows and system, everything is bad. Even fonts in konsole looks bad.
