Webcore fonts

I’ve been using the Webcore fonts available at SBo, since many years and always followed the post-install instructions in the README. However, I decided to post them here, for my own convenience.

After installation, get rid of 60-liberation.conf, found in /etc/fonts/conf.d/:

cd /etc/fonts/conf.d/
mv 60-liberation.conf 60-liberation.conf.old

Then add the following to /etc/fonts/local.conf (system-wide):

   <!-- Disable embedded bitmaps in fonts like Calibri -->
  <match target="font" >
    <edit name="embeddedbitmap" mode="assign">
      <bool>false</bool>
    </edit>
  </match>

Alternatively, the above can be placed in ~/.config/fontconfig/fonts.conf and will take effect only for your user.
