It is possible that that option doesn't work if you are using FontConfig
and/or Xft with Qt.
There is no GUI for FontConfig so you will need to edit:
and uncomment the section for sub pixel rendering. This has: "rgb" as the
default. If your flat screen is: bgr", you will also need to change the
'rgb' in this line (ONLY):
<edit name="rgba" mode="assign"><const>rgb</const></edit>
<edit name="rgba" mode="assign"><const>bgr</const></edit>
NOTE: despite some statements to the contrary, sub pixel rendering only
works on digitally driven flat screens.
