Try to edit /etx/X11/xorg.conf and in Monitor section erase higher resolutions. I had similar problem. Fonts were ugly and very big for example in instalation of pbi files. I've deleted those higher resoluions and now it works fine.

ok..thx a lot..it works...but....here's another question...

by adjusting the DPI, the fonts on the desktop, in the k menu, and on the taskbar don't seem to be affected..is it meant to be this way, or there's some problem with it?
