You can take precisely the same code, replace the <const>rgb</const> with
<const>none</const> and stick it into ~/.fonts.conf (wrapped in suitable 
XML headers and footers, of course)

Gnome includes a control panel which selects which kind of font display 
you get; I thought KDE provided one as well.

That's supposed to be a feature -- the system automatically discovers that 
you're using an LCD monitor and enables sub-pixel text.
