  <edit name="autohint" mode="assign">
    <bool>true</bool>
  </edit>
  <edit name="hinting" mode="assign">
    <bool>true</bool>
  </edit>
  <edit mode="assign" name="hintstyle">

  </edit>
  <edit mode="assign" name="lcdfilter">
   <const>lcddefault</const>

cp ~/.Xresources ~/.Xresources.bak
nano ~/.Xresources
Xft.dpi: 120
Xft.antialias: true
Xft.hinting: true
Xft.rgba: rgb
Xft.autohint: false

Make sure that Anti aliasing is On, and Hiting is set to Slight in System Settings (Appearence).
