I am using Xubuntu 12.04 with XFCE 4.8

Fonts in Qt-based apps like VLC look blurry in my user profile, as if anti-aliasing was turned off. Chrome has the same problem.

The problem is not system-wide though: in another user profile on the same machine, I have tried a couple of Qt applications and they look fine there.

Is it possible to have some screenshots ? – air-dex Aug 27 '12 at 0:51

I found this post:

In my case, it was enough to remove ~/.config/xfce4/xfconf/xfce-perchannel-xml/xsettings.xml (I removed ~/.cache/sessions too). I still don't know the real reason for the problem though.
