How to increase the font smoothing in Mac OS X (+10.5)

If you are using an older non-Apple display with your Mac (like me), you might notice that the font smoothing looks quite bad by default.

There’s an easy way to fix this.

Open up a terminal window and run this command:

defaults -currentHost write -globalDomain AppleFontSmoothing -int 3

Relog or restart, and the text will look much better.
