fixed width fonts in KDE

how can i force kde to change the 'fixed-width' font? it is some cursive
font that is very difficult to read, and for some reason it is used in the
package manager to display any message as the package is installed. some of
the packages show error messages as they are being installed, but i have no
idea what the message is since i cannot read this font. if i try to change
it in the kde control panel, no other fonts are displayed that i can choose
from. some of the text editors like 'advanced editor' also use this font,
meaning that i cannot read the files when i edit them, or when i type
something new. emacs and abiword don't seem to use this font, and the text
is displayed correctly.
