  1. Create fontconfig.conf and put this file in /usr/share/code/fontconfig.conf
    <?xml version='1.0'?>
    <!DOCTYPE fontconfig SYSTEM 'fonts.dtd'>
    <fontconfig>
      <!-- Force RGBA subpixel aliasing to ┬źnone┬╗ in code and code-insiders -->
      <match target="pattern">
        <or>
          <test name="prgname">
            <string>code</string>
          </test>
          <test name="prgname">
            <string>code-insiders</string>
          </test>
        </or>
        <edit name="rgba" mode="assign">
          <const>none</const>
        </edit>
      </match>
    </fontconfig>
  2. Symlink file to /etc/fonts/conf.d/99-vscode.conf
