You can also disabled just subpixel antialiasing using 
QFont::NoSubpixelAntialias. Then you should still get graytone antialiasing. 
Hopefully that would work better in this case. You can also disable cleartype 
on the OS level, if you are unable to modify the Qt application.

And on Windows you can try the freetype backend instead of the default windows 
font backend.
