Where does my system look for font settings before logged in as user? My login screen has ugly rendered fonts before I am logged in as user.

KDE Plasma is completely unrelated to your login manager. Which one do you use?

My screen:

Color display with the thin-film transistor (TFT) technology
Display size: 355.6 mm (14 inches)
Display resolution: 2560-by-1440
Intel HD Graphics 4400 or 5000

Code:
# xrandr
Screen 0: minimum 8 x 8, current 2560 x 1440, maximum 32767 x 32767         
eDP1 connected primary 2560x1440+0+0 (normal left inverted right x axis y axis) 310mm x 170mm                                                             
   2560x1440     60.00*+


Code:
# lshw
*-display
             description: VGA compatible controller
             product: Haswell-ULT Integrated Graphics Controller
             vendor: Intel Corporation
             physical id: 2
             bus info: pci@0000:00:02.0
             version: 09

             clock: 33MHz
             capabilities: msi pm vga_controller bus_master cap_list rom

For some reason

[8] 10-sub-pixel-vrgb.conf * was activated in fontconfig

but not

[6] 10-sub-pixel-rgb.conf



I did

Code:
# eselect fontconfig enable 6


and problem solved

Code:
# eselect fontconfig list
