Fix fonts quickly with auto-hinting

Very quick hack to fix the font hinting automatically. Just execute the below:

 

sudo ln -s /usr/share/fontconfig/conf.avail/10-autohint.conf /etc/fonts/conf.d/10-autohint.conf

After this you should see the font hinting enabled and thus better experience with fonts.

One of the easiest way to make sure that you can have a decent battery life is

sudo yum install tlp smartmontools
sudo systemctl enable tlp
sudo systemctl start tlp

And after this you can check the status like this:

sudo tlp stat
