Akira, unfortunately I think this is a related issue but not exactly a
duplicate of the one you mentioned.  I don't have a problem with fuzzy fonts. 
My problem is that on installation Fedora does not configure fonts in a way
that makes sense for users with LCD or LED monitors or those running on
laptops. While it is true that the desktop environments control font hinting
for apps under their direct control other X11 apps that have separate rendering
systems are not.

To mark this bug fixed it needs the follow to fix:

> The package 'freetype-freeworld' should be installed by default.

> In '/etc/fonts/conf.d' the following needs to be enabled.
>> 10-sub-pixel-rgb
>> 10-hinting-slight
>> 10-lcdfilter-default

> autohinter or any other types of hinting needs to be disabled.

This way font rendering in X11 applications such as xterm the various
web-browsers like Chrome or Firefox and other apps will render fonts properly
on LCD/LED screens and laptops.
