OK, my telepathy skills are failing me here, and there is no single
simple answer.

Maybe some more details will help...

* what font are you using *exactly*?
* which GIMP version on which operating environment (e.g. gimp 2.2 on
Mac OS 9, or gimp 2.8.14 on Mageia Linux 5, or what?) *exactly*?
* If it's GIMP 2.8.14 unger GNOME on a GNU/Linux system, is the text in
other applications also pixellated in the same way? You might have
disabled antialiasing system-wide, for example?
* what size is the text, in pixels?
* how are you adding the text? E.g. are you using the GIMP text tool,
or are you pasting pictures of text?
