Google Chrome (Chromium) font anti-aliasing is wrong on LXDE (L)Ubuntu Oneiric (11.10)

The solution was to add the following in the ~/.fonts.conf 

xml version="1.0"?>DOCTYPE fontconfig SYSTEM "fonts.dtd">
<fontconfig>
 <match target="font">
  <edit mode="assign" name="rgba">
   <const>noneconst>
  edit>
 match>
 <match target="font">
  <edit mode="assign" name="hinting">
   <bool>truebool>
  edit>
 match>
 <match target="font">
  <edit mode="assign" name="hintstyle">
   <const>hintslightconst>
  edit>
 match>
 <match target="font">
  <edit mode="assign" name="antialias">
   <bool>truebool>
  edit>
 match>
 <match target="font">
   <edit mode="assign" name="lcdfilter">
    <const>lcddefaultconst>
   <edit>
 <match>
</fontconfig>

One may have to play around with the "hintstyle" to get it right. The available options are:
  • hintslight
  • hintmedium
  • hintfull
  • none
