Better font rendering with Infinality Ultimate for openSUSE Leap

Infinality-ultimate is a set of patches that improves the font-rendering in Linux systems.

I use openSUSE Leap 42.1 and fialed to look for a 1-Click Install  at OBS. Google search yielded a repo for 13.2 and retracing my way up to its parent dir, I found the repo directory for Leap at

As usual I added it via CLI:
# zypper ar -f Infinality_Ultimate

and refreshed the new repo
# zypper ref Infinality_Ultimate

Since I already have the Infinality repo's fontoconfig installed, I need to force an update from the new repo

# zypper dup --from Infinality_Ultimate

After a reboot, my fonts are indeed much better, especially in my Chrome and Chromium browsers that has been giving me less than perfect fonts.

Anything that runs Qt and generally all now look amazing.
