Fluxbox: blurry TTF fonts

view full story

http://askubuntu.com – I'm using fluxbox. I've noticed that the TTF fonts are quite blurry (particularly in GVim): Here's an example, using Inconsolata 12pt in Fluxbox: Here's the same example, using Inconsolata 12pt, except in Unity: You can see that not only is the text easier to read in the Unity case, it's also larger. The font colors look faded in the fluxbox case as well. What I would like to ask is: How can I make the font under Fluxbox look the same as under Unity? It looks as if Fluxbox isn't getting the font sizes quite right and doing excessive antialiasing. Why are the fonts being rendered (HowTos)
