I see I asked you to do something but expected you to read my mind as to
Try kde settings, fonts (under common appearance and ..., app appearance).
Towards the bottom of that you should see the anti-aliasing and DPI
controls I was talking about, and my instructions should make more sense
than when you're looking at konsole's profile settings! =:^)
Yes, that'll affect fonts system-wide, but you can do it only
temporarily, for testing.
The reason I mention this is that I had to adjust it here, a year or so
ago, as the interaction between accelerated video and font aliasing
changed after an update, and pieces of letters ended up missing! It
could be you are seeing a variant on the same thing, and changing
aliasing/hinting might help as it did for me.
The kind of font (true-type, bitmapped, etc) would affect it too, as the
way these operations work on the various font types differs.
FWIW, I have anti-aliasing enabled, medium hinting, no sub-pixel, now,
but AFAIK I had to turn off at least hinting entirely, and possibly
aliasing, for a graphics driver version or two. It was driving me crazy
until I figured out that turning off hinting fixed it.
