Font settings I used in my Arch Linux install (on USB Pendrive)

I have the following content in my ~/.config/fontconfig/fonts.conf:

 <?xml version='1.0'?>  
 <!DOCTYPE fontconfig SYSTEM 'fonts.dtd'>  
 <fontconfig>  
   <match target="font">  
     <edit mode="assign" name="autohint">  
       <bool>false</bool>  
     </edit>  
   </match>  
   <match target="font">  
     <edit mode="assign" name="rgba">  
       <const>rgb</const>  
     </edit>  
   </match>  
   <match target="font">  
     <edit mode="assign" name="hinting">  
       <bool>true</bool>  
     </edit>  
   </match>  
   <match target="font">  
     <edit mode="assign" name="hintstyle">  
       <const>hintfull</const>  
     </edit>  
   </match>  
   <match target="font">  
     <edit mode="assign" name="antialias">  
       <bool>true</bool>  
     </edit>  
   </match>  
 </fontconfig>  

Also, from AUR, I have installed the package 'ttf-win7-fonts-autodownload'.

Further, I have installed 'ttf-ubuntu-font-family'.

In Firefox I have installed the "Theme Font & Size Changer" add-on.

IIRC, that's all I did to get great (at least to my eyes) fonts in my Arch installation.

By the way, this Arch installation is on a USB pendrive, allowing me to carry my Linux around all the time. Apna Linux Pehen Ke Chalo :-)
