This is an open question to Ubuntu/GNOME users -- I like to use a non-anti-aliased font (specifically ProFontWindows) when coding in my favourite text editor. However, I can only seem to switch on non-anti-aliasing (AKA 'monochrome font rendering') system wide (see screengrab of the Appearance Preferences dialog).
Is there any way to have a non-anti-aliased font for specific programs?
