OK, I know, an old issue…
Anyway, I did not find any Myzlocker repo, so, I suppose that all libraries are pre-compiled with the “correct” settings. In my ancient openSUSE 11.1 everything was smooth (not so smooth as in CentOS 6.5 for example, but smooth).
In my 13.1 everything is “ugly”.
My antialiases settings are:
In the Font Settings menu of Desktop configuration, I use “Enable” and RBG/Slight.
I have created a /home/user/.fonts.conf file, but it seems that I need to move it as /home/user/.config/fonts.conf
However fonts are one of those things that… people will forever fight over. I personally like the OS X (especially the 10.10’s font) style subpixel hinting but some people tend to prefer the much crispier fonts and the developers seem to be the people who dislike subpixel fonts in the first place (thus no default hinting in KDE) also unfortunately quite a few of them are covered by various patents so…
Disclaimer: I don’t take any responsibility if Namtracs repo blows your system up
First of all: thank you for your quick answer.
Now: KDE fonts in some applications are acceptable. But in others (like for example Konsole), are simply UNGLY. Anyway, if KDE has no subpixel hinting enabled, why is it on the Desktop Configurator?
Anyway, I will try and report back.
I have installed it. And it’s much better now, although I am not very happy with the way GMail looks (a little bit on the “bold” side). But much more pleasant to my eyes.
I need to search (just because I need to satisfy my curiosity) why openSUSE cannot use the same set of patches Red Hat or Ubuntu.
Not sure if this is still the case but if you use the version of infinality in the numtrac repo you need to roll libfreetype6 back to v2.4. Additionally, you can change the infinality settings by running the configuration script (which is supposed to be in /etc/profile.d/infinality-settings.sh according to the arch wiki and webupd8).
As for why opensuse cannot have infinality type patches by default, I asked the same question here.
