I am using both KDE and Xfce (mostly Xfce with KDE apps) and I observed that there is a font rendering difference between Gtk (Xfce) and QT (KDE) apps.
In both desktop environments I use dejavu sans font, size 9 and I have set RGB subpixel rendering and hinting to full.
I created some screenshots of dolphin and thunar to illustrate the differences (right click and select view image to see the screenshots in full resolution)
Can somebody help me to make gtk app fonts to look the same as qt ones? Or at least tell me why there is this difference.
I cant tell you why there is a difference, but this page may help you. https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Font_Configuration
I ended up installing the Ubuntu patched packages in the AUR, but there are different options.
I trust Microsoft about as far as I can comfortably spit a dead rat.
Cinnamon is a wonderful desktop
