I’ve been a happy user of Antergos for a few months now, using GNOME. But as a human is a curious creature, I wanted to try out a KDE desktop. So I installed it a separate partition. My SDD is divided into 4 partitions:
1 - Antergos/GNOME
2 - Antergos/KDE
3 - /home (shared by Gnome and KDE
4 - swap
I’ve polished and tweaked my Gnome system, where font rendering used to be managed by the infinity bundle, but since it has no longer been maintained I took some steps to get rid of it and got a satisfactory font rendering without it.
About a week ago I installed a new Antergos/KDE system to another partition and I have been struggling with font rendering again. I mean, fonts in QT apps are just fine, but as I use a few GTK apps as well (SW manager in KDE is a GTK app!) the look of the fonts is just horrible.
My /etc/fonts/conf.d lists:
README 37-repl-global-ms.conf 00kde.conf 40-nonlatin.conf 10-enhanced-defaults.conf 45-gelasio.conf 10_fontconfig-enhanced-defaults.gschema.override 45-latin.conf 10-hinting-medium.conf 49-sansserif.conf 10-scale-bitmap-fonts.conf 50-user.conf 10-sub-pixel-rgb.conf 51-local.conf 11-lcdfilter-default.conf 57-dejavu-sans.conf 20-unhint-small-dejavu-sans.conf 57-dejavu-sans-mono.conf 20-unhint-small-dejavu-sans-mono.conf 57-dejavu-serif.conf 20-unhint-small-dejavu-serif.conf 60-latin.conf 20-unhint-small-vera.conf 60-latin-ms.conf 30-carlito.conf 65-fonts-persian.conf 30-infinality-aliases.conf 65-nonlatin.conf 30-metric-aliases.conf 65-non-latin-ms.conf 30-metric-aliases-ms.conf 66-aliases-wine-combi.conf 30-ttf-liberation-mono.conf 66-aliases-wine-ms.conf 30-ttf-liberation-sans.conf 69-unifont.conf 30-urw-aliases.conf 80-delicious.conf 30-win32-aliases.conf 90-synthetic.conf 31-cantarell.conf 99pdftoopvp.conf
which is pretty the same as in my GNOME session. My Xresource file reads:
Xft.antialias: 1 Xft.hinting: 1 Xft.hintstyle: hintslight Xft.rgba: rgb Xft.lcdfilter: lcddefault !Xft.autohint: 0
Any hints how to improve renderring in GTK apps?
