Font configuration file to override "emboldening" of fonts without a bold version.
<?xml version="1.0"?>
<!DOCTYPE fontconfig SYSTEM "fonts.dtd">
This overrides what's in /etc/fonts/conf.d/90-synthetic.conf for
"faking" bold fonts, but only for monospace fonts.
<match target="font">
<test name="spacing" compare="eq">
<edit name="embolden" mode="assign">

Copy to file ~/.fonts.conf. I think it goes in ~/.config/fontconfig/fonts.conf on more recent fontconfig versions.
