Cool! In my fonts.conf I also have set the autohint and lcdfilter, so
it's possible (I have not tested) that you could also add these to get
it a little bit better:

Xft.autohint:   false
Xft.lcdfilter:  lcddefault

On my laptop panels (which is LED) I also use "rgba: none" which seems
(for some odd reason) to give me better smoothing of the font colors.
It's very weird, though - not always. Basically they all match my
.config/fontconfig/fonts.conf - I also had to reject "Caladea" and
"Carlito" fonts due to really weird output in Chromium on some web
pages. Here's my whole fonts.conf:


...and my ~/.gtkrc-2.0 and .config/gtk-3.0/settings.ini files that
might help you:
