I am not sure what changes I had made. I installed the KDE environment and gnome-shell last night. Till 1 hour back the font was smooth and looking good. All of a sudden I don't remmeber what changes I had made but the font is not smooth. But when I go to the font settings they are set to the same values as before. Screenshot of the font

Can someone help me with this. The words are not clear and legible.
