Great howto mate. I did it and it rocks! At last my eyes are happy.
Here's my fonts.conf if you wanna try ,
<?xml version="1.0"?> <!DOCTYPE fontconfig SYSTEM "fonts.dtd"> <fontconfig> <match target="font"> <edit mode="assign" name="hinting" > <bool>true</bool> </edit> </match> <match target="font"> <edit mode="assign" name="hintstyle" > <const>hintfull</const> </edit> </match> <match target="font"> <edit mode="assign" name="rgba" > <const>rgb</const> </edit> </match> <match target="font"> <edit mode="assign" name="antialias" > <bool>true</bool> </edit> </match> <match target="font"> <edit mode="assign" name="lcdfilter"> <const>lcddefault</const> </edit> </match> </fontconfig>
Just a note: installing a huge number of fonts does have an impact on Inkscape startup times (as it currently does not cache the font list)

Thanks for the post...
I thought at my age it was just my eyes getting worse.
A person who has a cat by the tail knows a whole lot more about cats than someone who has just read about them.
@ivanov, I was having Iceweasel/Fireofx/Midori rendering issues where Helvetica was a web page's specified font and bitmap fonts were enabled on my system. I thought it would be worth mentioning here. The thread...

^Thanks for mentioning it. As I think again about it, if you enable bitmap fonts, they can screw up your font settings in some cases and then indeed you have to adjust your ~/.fonts.conf accordingly.

Thank you ivanovnegro (and others). So much help for my customizing tendencies. Cool looking clocks aside, I am now on a personal quest for those perfect editor and terminal fonts. On that subject - thought I'd share this...
Spiral out... keep - going.
Great How To! Thank you! Everything is clear now on my screen!
Thank you very much for this post. I followed the Openbox instructions (.Xdefaults) and reconfigured fontconfig. The success is tremendous. Fonts are sharp and clear, which is what I wanted. I think the one thing that bothered me most about the font issues discussed here was that no matter what the individual glyphs looked like the whole appearance was terrible due to the seemingly random spacing between letters. This is much better now and I might still be able to improve it by trying other fonts.
Hi, thanx for your Guide , i followed and some of my font are ruined you can read what i mean in this web site
I have the same problem like first screenshot , which a lot of times appears in Linkedin and Facebook, so far i realized that Helvetica renders really ugly if i turn of font bitmap will the problem be fixed ?
Ruined. Then you were reading blindly. Sorry, not my fault.
Yes, you should disable bitmap fonts. And in fact there is one flaw in my how-to, because when you enable bitmap fonts like mentioned in my how-to they will be applied globally, not so sexy as you already experience. So revert that. There is a better method to use bitmap fonts but only for certain applications. Though I won't update this how-to anymore.
thanx for your help, i am still learning it takes time to learn and use Debian os.
However, you should really mention that fc-cache -fv must be run as root if you also want to update the (otherwise non-user-writable) /var/cache/fontconfig directory. Though it will "work" both as root and as regular user, in the latter case the updating of fontconfig in /var/cache will (obviously) be skipped, making every application which reads out the system-wide cache ignore your font configuration updates.
