Assuming Funtoo Current.
Linux font quality is a chronic issue, by default fonts configuration far from ideal look. This can solved by rebuilding <tt>media-libs/fontconfig</tt> with infinality USE flag, which applying infinality patch set. Patches, previously available in lcd-filtering overlay, now merged into main Gentoo portage tree.

== Freetype ==
+
Freetype can be configured through environment variables (see <tt>/etc/env.d/99lcdfilter</tt> for a list of the variables and their description). Those variables can be overridden on a per-user basis by either redefining them in a startup file (such as <tt>~/.bash_profile</tt>) or by sourcing the <tt>/usr/lib/ft-settings.sh</tt> script with the desired style in parameter (you can, of course, source the script from a startup file).
+
 
+
usage: source ft-settings.sh <style>
+
 
+
<console>
+
Possible styles: 
+
  default      - Use default settings.  A compromise that should please most people 
+
  osx          - Simulate OSX rendering 
+
  ubuntu      - Simulate UBUNTU rendering 
+
  linux        - Generic Linux style - no snapping or certain other tweaks 
+
  windows      - Simulate Windows rendering 
+
  vanilla      - Just subpixel hinting
+
 
+
Infinality styles: 
+
  classic      - Infinality rendering circa 2010. No snapping 
+
  nudge        - CLASSIC with lightly stem snapping and tweaks 
+
  push        - CLASSIC with medium stem snapping and tweaks 
+
  shove        - Full stem snapping and tweaks without sharpening 
+
  sharpened    - Full stem snapping, tweaks, and Windows-style sharpening 
+
  infinality  - Settings used by Infinality
+
</console>
+
== LibXft ==
+
Only legacy programs still use libXft. The default configuration is defined in <tt>/usr/share/X11/app-defaults/Xft</tt>. It can be overriden on a per-user basis in the <tt>~/.Xresources</tt> or <tt>~/.Xdefaults</tt> files:
+
 
+
<console>
+
Xft.antialias:  1
+
Xft.autohint:  0 
+
Xft.dpi:        96 
+
Xft.hinting:    1 
+
Xft.hintstyle:  hintfull 
+
Xft.lcdfilter:  lcddefault 
+
Xft.rgba:      rgb
+
</console>

Assuming Funtoo Current.

Kernel

emerge vanilla-sources

Kernel .config

mv /usr/src/linux/.config /usr/src/linux/.config-old
git clone https://gist.github.com/2604445.git

If you have lvm add --lvm

genkernel --no-mrproper all

Update boot

You may need to view
 man boot.conf 
for a proper entry. Or ask hoverbear on freenode.
