10.6: Re-enable LCD font smoothing for some monitors

I know this is a 10.6 topic, but does this problem continue with Lion?

10.6: Re-enable LCD font smoothing for some monitors

Yes, I just used this command to successfully restore proper font smoothing on OS X Lion 10.7.2.

(defaults -currentHost write -globalDomain AppleFontSmoothing -int 2)

I'm using a LG Flatron E2260 22" monitor connected to a Mac mini 2.3GHz (mid 2011 model) via the included HDMI to DVI adapter. Everything now looks great!

I also experimented with various settings: system default settings, completely disabled, "1", "2" . I chose a value "2", after a long hesitation:
defaults -currentHost write -globalDomain AppleFontSmoothing -int 2
On Lion it's more application-basis. For one application is more suitable value "1", for other value "2". Finally, I stick with a value "2" as most suitable and universal for my NEC Display MultiSync PA271W on OS X Lion 10.7.2.
