Installation Instructions

Use fontconfig-infinality which gives good settings (optional)

dnf install fontconfig-infinality


save the following configuration to $HOME/.fonts.conf

<?xml version='1.0'?> <!DOCTYPE fontconfig SYSTEM 'fonts.dtd'> <fontconfig> <match target="font"> <edit mode="assign" name="rgba"><const>rgb</const></edit> </match> <match target="font"> <edit mode="assign" name="hinting"><bool>true</bool></edit> </match> <match target="font"> <edit mode="assign" name="hintstyle"><const>hintslight</const></edit> </match> <match target="font"> <edit mode="assign" name="antialias"><bool>true</bool></edit> </match> <match target="font"> <edit mode="assign" name="lcdfilter"><const>lcddefault</const></edit> </match> </fontconfig>
