I have edited my fonts.conf so that different fonts get hinted and smoothed differently. Firefox respects this but GTK applications seem to only be governed by gnome-appearance-properties (apart from auto-hinting).

is the edit an answer to your question? If so please remove it from the question and use that as an answer to your question. You can then 'accept' your answer (probably takes a day or so for you to do that last part)/ –  Rinzwind May 23 '11 at 9:31
no , the question is still open. I thought I had solved it but I had only applied autohinting –  daithib8 May 24 '11 at 9:59
You could include a sample fonts.conf entry that you tried. –  Adam Byrtek May 30 '11 at 19:01
my .fonts.conf is a bit long, but my question still applies even with a default (blank) .fonts.conf. i.e gnome-appearance-properties overrides the hinting set in /etc/fonts for gtk apps but does not override firefox. –  daithib8 Jul 4 '11 at 9:59
