I'm much satisfied with my Xfce4 Desktop, but recently the font rendering annoy me a lot.
I follow the wiki:fontconfig and emerge infinality and disable all the option in the
Code:
eselect fontconfig list

But the effect isn't as good as what I thought... :roll:

I also copy /etc/fonts/ from my LinuxMint and cover /etc/fonts/ in my Gentoo, the rendering seems better, but font "Noto Sans" ,which is used for my desktop fonts, cannot be detect...

So if there is any nice guide on how to deal with fonts rendering in Gentoo, just tell me, thank you :)

Or if you think you have a beautiful font rendering, Just paste out your
Code:
eselect fontconfig list
can also help me a lot for a reference!
Thanks anyway~

The Noto Sans font is part of the media-fonts/noto package.

I use the Infinality patched fonts as listed in the set-up guide here:-

There is a package for fontconfig-ultimate now. I find it too much though and have found it's possible to get very good rendering with a simple set up like this -
