I know this is a pretty common bug, however none of the solutions I could find helped me.
Fonts are ugly in Java applications
Here are two examples (Processing & PyCharm):
As I mentioned above, there are many solutions out there, but none of them fixed the problem for me:

How can I fix the font rendering?
Some useful (maybe?) information:
