Change Chrome Font hinting in Gnome – Fedora,Ubuntu

The Google chrome browser or chromium browser is not always accepting the font hinting settings done is the gnome control center or gnome tweak tool. The result is all other application font hinting and google chrome browser, chromium browser font hinting are different some time. This lead to bad look of fonts in google chrome or chromium browser in gnome 3 desktop. To disable the font hinting in gnome just edit the font conf file in the home directory

<?xml version="1.0"?><!DOCTYPE fontconfig SYSTEM "fonts.dtd">
 <match target="font">
     <edit name="hinting" mode="assign"><bool>false</bool></edit>

Change the contents look like then save the file. Restart the google chrome or chromium browser. The Font hinting is now disabled on google chrome or chromium.
