In Debian in libfreetype, FT_CONFIG_OPTION_SUBPIXEL_RENDERING is not
set, probably on purpose. The libfreetype doku says:
Note that no filter is active by default, and that this function is
not implemented in default builds of the library. You need to
#define FT_CONFIG_OPTION_SUBPIXEL_RENDERING in your ‘ftoption.h’ file
in order to activate it.
So no filter is applied by libfreetype and Qt should honor this and
_not_ _blur_ _glyphs_. This not only makes fonts ugly on low
resolution devices but also make the desktop inconsistent, because
Qt3, KDE3 and GTK-Applications will look fine while Qt4-Applications
will look “different”.
In my opinion a toolkit should not mess with libfreetypes
