I have 2 partitions one with arch and one gentoo.
Im using Bohoomils repo for arch and the fonts are fantastic.

With gentoo i use infinality-ultimate-meta with a local ebuild for fontconfig-ultimate with patches from bohoomil git.
Same fonts are used and its OK, but not nearly as good as arch.

So can someone point me in the right direction how improve them??

Using plasma 5 and ubuntu ttf fonts.

You can configure it with two files in :
https://github.com/bohoomil/fontconfig-ultimate/tree/master/freetype

https://github.com/bohoomil/fontconfig-ultimate/blob/master/freetype/infinality-settings.sh

How can i do that?

Edit: Nevermind, i figured it out and im now happy with this configuration.
Its now as good as my arch installation.

Thank you very much... Now i can finally use Gentoo as my primary distribution :)
