bad fonts in opera menu with msttcorefonts

Hi, I have installed msttcorefonts with manual here:

(that is
cd /tmp/
wget http://corefonts.sourceforge.net/mst...nts-2.0-1.spec
yum -y install rpm-build cabextract ttmkfdir
rpmbuild -bb msttcorefonts-2.0-1.spec
rpm -ivh /root/rpmbuild/RPMS/noarch/msttcorefonts-2.0-1.noarch.rpm --nodeps

Now I have menu items in opera and also fonts on some pages are very ugly.
1. how can I fix this madness and "uninstall" what I have done? (rpm -e did not work)
2. how can I install msttcorefonts to work properly on fedora 10 (in ubuntu it worked using apt-get install msttcforefonts)

this is the screenshot how it looks now:

Btw. the monochromatic font rendering is ok, it is ugly too, but at least not blurry With antialiasing enabled my eyes hurt after a while. I'm talking about the width of menus, it should be about one third of what it is now...

Thank you for any help, I do not want to reinstall fedora
