Default Re: 2560x1600 fonts illegible

If too small, then google "dots per inch". See your current setting:

xdpyinfo | grep -B1 dot
The size (height and width) of the fonts appear to be okay (or atleast there about size i would expect for a 2560x1600 desktop), but they are all misshapen, (ie the veritcal lines are not all the same width and the turns are not smooth)

this weird scaling seems to affect everything (kde, gnome, gdm, kconsole, gimp) not just one app, so i'm pretty sure it's a xorg issue, just not sure what.
