Fix the font rendering of Calibri

If you see very bad artifacts when displaying small sizes of the Calibri font in Linux (which you are not allowed to use because it comes with a MS Windows only license) you should disable their embedded bitmap variants in $HOME/.fonts.conf:

<match target=”font” >
     <edit name=”embeddedbitmap” mode=”assign”>
         <bool>false</bool>
     </edit>
</match>

2ct and a cookie if someone sends me the snippet to only apply this to the Calibri font :-).

Thanks to
