[arch-general] Subpixel antialiasing

Since Xfce4 breaks things within major release updates, I don't use
Xfce4 anymore. AFAIK Xfce4 still claims to be GTK2, but I suspect themes
likely already got broken by preparation to switch to GTK3. I might be

$ pacman -Si chromium | grep Depe
Depends On     : gtk2 [snip]

You could test if ~/.gtkrc-2.0 does solve this issue.

gtk-xft-antialias =
gtk-xft-hinting =
gtk-xft-hintstyle =
gtk-xft-rgba =

Even while Firefox also depends on GTK2 and the gtkrc either way might
not work when running Xfce4.

$ pacman -Si firefox | grep Depe
Depends On     : gtk2 [snip]

I use openbox with .gtkrc-2.0, .config/gtk-3.0/settings.ini and I
suspect qtconfig-qt3 and/or qtconfig-qt4 settings are stored
in .config/Trolltech.conf. However, fonts and themes are a mess on my
machine, even when I chose equal fonts and equal font sizes, it doesn't
result in really equal fonts.

It only looks like a tape-recorder. It's actually a pen.
So you can write with it and no one will know.
