Improve Font Rendering in Fedora Linux

In this guide, we are going to see the steps to improve the font rendering and make Fedora font rendering like Ubuntu using Infinality font. I’m not going to add any before/after screenshots as the font rendering will differ from display to display based on the resolution, the pixel density etc.

Method 1 – Using Liberation Fonts

We are going to install Liberation fonts from Fedora Repository which serves as replacement MS fonts namely, Times New Roman, Arial, and Courier New. The Liberation fonts package will install Sans, Serif, and Monospace, Narrow families.

Go to the Liberation Fonts Build page and download the latest 2.x version binary TTF package.

Then extract it using an archive manager or by running the following command,
tar -xvf liberation-fonts-ttf-2*.tar.gz

Make the liberation directory in /usr/share/fonts/ by running the following command,
sudo mkdir -p /usr/share/fonts/truetype/liberation

 

Now we have to copy all the TTF files to /usr/share/fonts/truetype/liberation directory.

Lets browse to the directory which has the liberation fonts and then copy it to the liberation fonts directory that we created in the above step and then cache the newly installed fonts by running the following commands,
cd liberation-fonts-ttf-2*
sudo cp *.ttf /usr/share/fonts/truetype/liberation/
sudo fc-cache
