Icewm ugly fonts

Hey, guys! I'm new to this forum, but i run Slackware (Salix) for quite a long time now.
All this time i've been using XFCE or LXDE and i didn't have any problems with font rendering, but
recently i've installed salix core + icewm and my fonts are very ugly. Here is what i've tried
to do to improve my font rendering problem:

1. I've recompiled freetype with subpixel rendering option
2. I've installed extra fonts (+ Windows 8 fonts)
cd /etc/fonts/conf.d
ln -s /etc/fonts/conf.avail/10-hinting-full.conf (I use 10-hinting-slight.conf, but you mentioned you like full)
ln -s /etc/fonts/conf.avail/10-sub-pixel-rgb.conf
ln -s /etc/fonts/conf.avail/11-lcdfilter-default.conf

Xft.dpi: 96
Xft.antialias: 1
Xft.hinting: 1
Xft.hintstyle: hintfull
Xft.lcdfilter: lcddefault
Xft.rgba: rgb
Xft.autohint: 0
What else could i do??

Here how my fonts look like

Fonts on icewm are fine here. Since you installed the core group of packages of salix, you miss packages need from basic group.

Code: Select all

sudo update-all
to see if this solves the problem.
