Webcore and Infinality Ultimate on openSUSE Leap is awesome

Previously I wrote about using Infinality Ultimate to make the font rendering on my openSUSE Leap looking fabulous. Well, Yuzery Yusoff in the OpenSUSE Malaysia FB group added that he also added the webcore fonts to even make it more fabulous.

Here are his comments :

" My steps installing infinality ultimate:
1. Google "infinality ultimate opensuse"
2. Add repo frm ( coz im using tumbleweed)
3. Open yast>software management and view repo. Choose repo for infinality and switch to it and follow further installation
3. After finish with installation, i find "webcore" repo and install "webcore" and "webcore-vista" fonts
4. After finish install both of microsoft fonts, open terminal and type this: sudo fc-presets set
5. It will prompt for choices. I enter no 3 which is meant for ms ( micro$oft)
6. Restart your computer

There u go. The fonts absolutely better, even better than in Windows for me laa..

Because I'm dealing with my peers who still using Windows and Office suite, i need to install WPS Office for exact compatibility

Done. No more just looking tru windows. I ran out from the gates. Go to the open field and play around the open world...hahaha

And my - the effects are really astounding!!

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.
