Using the GUI version of emacs, I would like to the fonts to match the rest of my system.

I have changed my the font to the same as my terminal font, but the anti-aliasing makes it look much different.

Is there anyway to disable anti-aliasing from emacs for the X server version?

Or do I need to look into fonts.conf or something similar?

I am using Fedora 23 and emacs-24.5.

    I use (add-to-list 'default-frame-alist '(font . "Consolas-19:antialias=true:hinting=false" )). You could try with antialias=false but that gave me weird looking fonts.

  • Search in the preference, there is an option "antialias". Turn it off.
