Font hinting in fontconfig preferences

I am dealing with font kerning issues in my pdf and need to "turn off font hinting in your fontconfig preferences" but I am unable to find where the fontconfig preferences in the current version of Calibre.

Fontconfig preferences are not part of calibre. Fontconfig is configured system wide on a linux system. However, there should be no need for it if you are using an official calibre release, since it includes a patched Qt that disables font hinting automatically when converting to PDF. If you are using the distro calibre version, then you will need to mess with fontconfig.
