you might need to raise a feature request to bring it to the attention

So I used your procedure and it worked. The font is smaller and clearer, but I am unsure what can now be done with the normal font setup. The read-me file seems to include a lot of manual things to do and no gui.
Each Binary/script has a --help, but its only three lines. Both have a man page, but under openSUSE 13.1, the formatting is all messed up. I would say it was not installed in openSUSE 13.1 because it is not really ready for prime time and more of a work in progress if you don’t mind tinkering with it. Just my opinion of course.
Sorry it didn’t work for you. I had the direct opposite effect. My fonts look more polished (like Ubuntu - but not quite), which is what Opensuse 13.1 was supposed to be. Careful, the Global Moderator will get upset that you aren’t giving enough detail about your system and issues at hand.
I’m much more use to the Ubuntu world in which folks are happy to give a helping hand to a newbie.
No need to take offense. I have it turned on and I agree it looks better. I still stand by my thoughts that it is not polished enough to come turned on, but we don’t make that decision, the developers do that. I for one appreciate you showing this to us. Everyone is free to use it and to and an opinion on how well it works. So thank you for your technical help.
I just gave you a reputation bump to show my appreciation. Now I expect that you will indeed find a new project and share it with us. Consider that no matter how good something is you share, there will be those it does not work for and in general people that you can’t make happy. Do the best you can and ignore the rest. I ask that you look at my blog pointer in my signature as an example of things I feel are helpful for our users. There are many ways to share anything you come up with. Thank You and good luck with your ideas.
I too use it and LO looks fine to me, I have KDE set to use the system settings for AA and infinality enabled. The only issue I had with infinality was that for some reason it could not make use of libfreetype6 until I downgraded it to v2.4 (13.1 seems to come with v2.5 by default).
I know you already removed it and all but I had the same issue and it turned out that if I used libfreetype6 from the infinality opensuse repo instead of the one from the 13.1 repo I could make it look nice (they are different versions of libfreetype6).
