I am not sure if this might help, but it does improve the way fonts are
rendered for me in KDE and Gnome.

Basically it turns on hinting.

Put this in a file called .fonts.conf in your home directory.
--8<--
<?xml version="1.0"?>
<!DOCTYPE fontconfig SYSTEM "fonts.dtd">
<fontconfig>
  <match target="font">
    <edit name="autohint" mode="assign">
      <bool>true</bool>
    </edit>
  </match>
</fontconfig>
