Default Fonts/Grafic and interface unsharp

Here is what I got (the right side). Every font looks unsharp, the same with pictures and windows.


first of all, I thought it could be due to missing antialiasing

but after receiving images like this (pictures on my screen looks like compressed images (like the zoom bubble on the top picture, right side))
I think there could be also another reason for ...

Additional info:
I'm using the radeon driver for my HD5870 with 1440x900 resolution.

Any ideas?

That's how anti-aliased fonts are supposed to look.

Did you install the msttcorefonts?

Oh, wait. On re-reading your post, you're saying the whole window looks like the magnification bubble.

Never mind. Sorry for the noise.

np jggimi, every try is helpfull!

what I did today:

i checked

Code:
 $ /usr/X11R6/bin/xdpyinfo | grep RENDER
    RENDER
and installed also msttcorefonts over ports too (cause I thought this problem could be due to anti aliasing)

But I think it has to do something with this. I have the feeling that the whole screen has taken a smooth effect and now I want to make it sharp ^^.

It tried both ModeLine configuration 50 Hz and 70 Hz (as given in the handbook) for my 1440x900 res (this is also not the correct solution). The problem still exists.


Not sure, if it helps you: If I enlarge my fonts to for example 48px, it becomes better the sharpness. I need a way to reduce the anti alias effect.
