System font issue

Update:11-30Source: network consolidation

Hello.
I'm running a Xfce4 DE, and I seem to be having an issue with my system font. It started after installing vlc, and the accompanying ttf-freefont package.
Here is an example of what is happening.

The top pic is with the messed up font, and the bottom is what it loked like after a fresh install of Arch with Xfce4.
As you can see several of the letters in the text overlap. The thing is that I never changed the system font, and only the size, after the inital Arch install.

This problem affects all sorts of programs... Terminal, Firefox, wxHexEditor, etc.
In the case of my hex editor, it renders it useless.

Your first image has overlapping fonts because your default fonts has been changed when you installed VLC. You can try removing  the ttf-freefont like here
Your second image looks fine(you will need fonts settings as per the wiki, which is why i linked the page), it doesnt have overlapping fonts. what exactly are you asking here?
