Bad Font Rendering

Hi everyone, I'm having a little trouble with my fonts. For pretty much all programs, the fonts render a little sharp and ugly (unless the program's run as root). Most noticable are the menu bars in programs like Firefox and Gaim. Below are a couple pictures, one showing the menu and URL in Firefox when it's run as a normal user, and the other when Firefox is run as root. When I run as root, the fonts render just fine (smoother and much easier to read). I'm wondering why this is happening, and how I can make the fonts render smooth when I run applications as a normal user.


I'm running mdk 10.1 with the latest updates.







uname -a

Linux localhost #1 Fri Oct 1 12:53:41 CEST 2004 i686 Intel® Pentium® 4 CPU 2.80GHz unknown GNU/Linux


Any help is greatly appreciated! Thanks in advance.
