Forget it then.

Huh ?
That's crazy, why should i enable a m$ crap to have aliased fonts in FF ?

Also, i'd like to make a redistributable thing.

Do you by any chance have a file ~/.fonts.conf ? If so, delete it and then try. That fixed it for me. It seemed to happen when I switched back and forth between xfce and kde, changing font settings in kde. Then going back to xfce the fonts were not anti-aliasing. But they did once I got rid of that file.

Follow up: font.conf file in different place in 14.1

Hi, just in case someone comes across this in a search and is using slackware 14.1 (or -current at the time of writing), the same problem can be fixed again by removing the fonts.conf file, but it is not in the home directory any more, rather in ~/.config/fontconfig/ .
