Qt Creator looks so bad on Ubuntu 14.04
Three days ago i started using Linux but Qt creator fonts look so bad i can't really use it.
i unistalled and installed Qt and Qt creator again but still same. It was looking fine on Windows 8.
is there a way to change font size of overall?
For building Qt
@<QtInstall>/bin/qmake -r QT_PRIVATE_HEADERS=<QtSources>/include <QtCreatorSources>
Did i miss something?
Try the prebuilt (installer) Qt Creator, it handles fonts a bit better. Although the screenshot you've provided really looks good, I'm not sure what you mean when you say the font is ugly.
Thanks for reply @sierdzio.
If you compare it to others it's not looks good. i'll try the installer but is there a way to resize the font? not only the text editor but all?
i want to make the font like this pic

What Font is selected in your Tools, Options, Text Editor, Font and Colors?

Keep in mind others may have different resolution than you and you may have different default system fonts also like andrep said configure your own setup for fonts if you don't like it maybe also check there if antialias is ticked or not...
I just installed it using the installer, and now everything looks cool.
I think i missed something while building Qt.
Is that how you guys build Qt? is there any other command use it.
@ ./configure -prefix <path>
Qt Creator release team uses some additional code/ packs when building the binary installer to make sure the fonts are fine. I don't remember how to do it, but you can ask on Qt Creator mailing list.

May be it is not Qt specific issue.
Try to change appearance setting as shown in red ring.
I'm too have a similar problem with ugly fonts in QtCreator. This happens only in case QtCreator was compiled with Qt5. In my case ugly fonts appears as in Ubuntu 14 (with KDE) and as in ArchLinux (with KDE).. I tried do many recipes (with patches for fontconfig, with different QtCreator's installers and so on), but a problem still is in. Earlier (when using of QtCreator which based on Qt4) all fonts were fine.
Now, I don't know how to solwe it, any recommendations from google does not works. .. :)
Now I just use a dark theme in QtCreator to avoid of ugly fonts..

The difference between the two screenshots is the style (QStyle) used. The first image is using Fusion, the second is using GTK. The Creator version that is packaged with the Qt installer seems to render fonts differently with every release (when using Fusion), GTK style is more readable for me [with default settings].
Qt 5.4 seems to have better font rendering on Linux.
