    I used the repo mentioned ( Index of /subpixel/Factory/ ) and it seemed to work. I switched to, installed, then disabled the repo. Not sure if I have to enable anything else I just enabled subpixel and slight in KDE settings. It does look a bit nicer.

    @gldickens3, thanks for the link and explanations.

    Muzlocker's 12.2 repo has been posted at:

    Index of /repositories/home:/muzlocker/openSUSE_12.2

    I'm using subpixel repo from namtrac. I also have a Windows installation and took some of the TrueType fonts from there to my liking, then configured everything and it works quite fine for me.

    Just my finding. Switch to Muzlocker repo produce great font on KDE app but ugly on GTK app. So I install fonconfig from community subpixel repo and got the best result.

    Make sure that you have configured your Personal Settings to use your KDE fonts in GTK applications with:

    Personal Settings > Application Appearance > GTK Styles and Fonts > Check "Use my KDE fonts in GTK applications."

    Wow, thanks for that! Never noticed it, was always mildly annoyed with gtk fonts in kde...

    Aargh I checked out all post/repositories. I just can' t get it right!
    My fonts in GTK applications really really suck.

    There used to be an application "gnome-appearance-properties" in OpenSuse 10.3 that would do everything for me. A few clicks and everything was settled.
    But I cannot find it, nor can I find the package to install it ????

    I really makes me crazy.
    Currently I have installed the packages from Index of /subpixel/openSUSE_Tumbleweed/x86_64/ .

    My configuration panels of firefox look like the ones in kde. Chrome / chromium fonts suck. Firefox content of websites suck. Eclipse takes on font configured in "GTK Styles and Fonts" but rendering sucks. File-roller has huge fonts, I cannot change the way that program looks. Man, I totally lost it. I don't know what to do anymore ... . Just looks at how this page looks like : Ubuntu Forums - View Single Post - [SOLVED] 12.04 LTS / Precise Classic (No effects) Tweaks and tricks

    Oke, yaaaay. I found it. You have to UNCHECK "Exclude range".
