Is there any suggestion on Arch Linux running Gnome 2.6.30 to improve
the crisp / clearness of my fonts? I installed the latest available
nVidia drivers & under 'Appearance' > 'Fonts' > 'Details', I show the

* Resolution: 98 dots per square inch.
* Smoothing: Subpixel (LCD)
* Hinting: Slight
* Subpixel Order; RGB

It just never seems as clear and crisp when I compare side by side to
Ubuntu or Windows 7. The font clarity is notable difference beween
Arch and I would like to change this. Any help and or tips would be
greatly appreciated!
