Just install this two packages on this repo and relog... Then let us
know if you see any improvement.

I have the two packages a try and the improvements are clearly
visible. There's one note from me though, the default 'sans-serif'
font seems to be a serif one and I can't find a way to correct it.

I've attached an example from Firefox ( although I see it in system
dialogs as well ) and my gnome 3 font configuration.

I don't know exactly what 'infinality fonts' term means, so this can
be offtopic.

Infinality is a set of patches for the freetype rendering engine that
enables/improves TTF and ClearType rendering with sub-pixel hinting;
This set of patches (and configuration files) beat the fuck out of
freetype-freeworld and you get font rendering which doesn't embarass
Linux when compared to Windows and OSX.

The issue is that most fonts traditionally shipped by openSUSE/SUSE
(and other distros) don't really support to the full extent the
capabilities of this patch set. If you use Microsoft Fonts or for
example the Ubuntu Font Family, you will get amazing results...

That's what it does :)
