    From where I sit, font quality using openSUSE of all the font families that I find "acceptable" are always good, as long as they are big enough, and the display's dot pitch is tight enough. Examples of those I don't find acceptable include Verdana, Courier, and most of the demi weight and obese fonts that have become common favorites of web stylists with little or no understanding of legibility or the informational purposes of the web.

    I tried to PM or email this to you, but my PMs from here are being blocked, and I had no luck finding an email address.
    Sorry. I was away for a long time. I just saw your message today. I will look at the links. If you want to email me, you can do so. dick@dickbosman.com
    I myself are still experimenting with the fonts I like. My terminal is OK now, but I'm noot happy with the KDE/GTK fonts. Extra problem is that not all fonts need the same subpixel hinting. Take care. I like KDE. It will turn out OK. Maybe we can exchange our results?

    Here's the setup I've been using for about 4 year now.
    I like Menlo for xterm and the URL bar, Helvetica Neue for everything else. No hinting or autohinting.
    Using SeaMonkey for webby things, xterm+vim+ruby for virtually all other tasks.
    Occasionally I start up Steam for gaming and LibreOffice for the boring stuff.
    Plasma's task bar with application menu and system tray auto-hides. No shadows, no effects.

    The contents of my /etc/fonts/local.conf (and essentially ~/.config/fontconfig/fonts.conf too):
    Code:
    <?xml version="3.0"?>
    <!DOCTYPE fontconfig SYSTEM "fonts.dtd">
    <!-- /etc/fonts/local.conf file for local customizations -->
    <fontconfig>
     <match target="font">
      <edit name="lcdfilter" mode="assign">
       <const>lcddefault</const>
      </edit>
     </match>
     <match target="font">
      <edit name="autohint" mode="assign">
       <bool>false</bool>
      </edit>
     </match>
     <match target="pattern">
      <edit name="dpi" mode="assign">
       <double>96</double>
      </edit>
     </match>
     <match target="font">
      <edit name="rgba" mode="assign">
       <const>rgb</const>
      </edit>
     </match>
     <match target="font">
      <edit name="hinting" mode="assign">
       <bool>false</bool>
      </edit>
     </match>
     <match target="font">
      <edit name="hintstyle" mode="assign">
       <const>hintnone</const>
      </edit>
     </match>
     <match target="font">
      <edit name="antialias" mode="assign">
       <bool>true</bool>
      </edit>
     </match>
    </fontconfig>
    Works for me. Cheers!
