    Default Re: How to turn on better fonts antialiasing for KDE4

    I have distinct dislike for windows fonts. And I booted W7 yesterdayas part of some experimentation I am doing. I noticed the fonts there were not as clear as in SUSE. I tried changing them from default but it didn't seem to make a scrap of difference.
    Thank heavens for openSUSE.

    I admit to having windows fonts added and when they are the look is better, though I'm not actually using any windows fonts. Anyone able to explain that?

    My ideal combination is Calibri fonts size 10 and consolas size 9. You may have to add a .Xresources file in your /home directory with the following contents:-

    Xft.lcdfilter: lcddefault
    Xft.hintstyle: hintslight

    Hope this works for you.

    If you haven't noticed the link I had given had link to your rpm only... I am using these fonts and just loving it. Thank You again
