On OS X, monospaced fonts are slightly more weighted than the other fonts. This (I feel) helps bring out the colors more vividly.
Since I am on Linux, I'm trying to replicate the behavior. I'm trying to do this by editing the property "weight" in
<?xml version="1.0"?> <!DOCTYPE fontconfig SYSTEM "fonts.dtd"> <fontconfig> <match target="font"> <test name="family"> <string>DejaVu Sans Mono</string> <string>Bitstream Vera Sans Mono</string> </test> <edit name="weight" mode="assign"> <const>medium</const> </edit> </match> </fontconfig>
Apparently, this does not work properly. What happens is that bold face DejaVu or Bitstream mono fonts becomes more bold, and nothing happens to the other.
So how do I fix this?
