Ugly Font Appearance in Linux

Issue:

Suddenly found that the Serif fonts appeared in Linux is uglier than those appeared on Mac OS X.

Solution:

Configure Desktop by enabling Use sub-pixel rendering, and choose Slight in Hinting style.

Config:

  • OpenSuse 13.1
  • KDE 4.11

Tricks:

Some suggestion was to install Microsoft fonts, actually this could be done but still ugly Serif fonts was shown.
