I use Fedora on my notebook and Arch on my desktop. Last night, I found a way to make my fonts display much better on Arch by replacing file /etc/fonts/local.conf with a version from github.

This morning, I decided to try the same thing on Fedora. But, when I went to /etc/fonts, there was no file local.conf. So, I just added the file from github. I rebooted the system. But there was no change to the fonts displayed.

Does Fedora even use that file?

I'm running Fedora 29 with Gnome and Wayland. My Arch system uses Openbox and pure Xorg.
