Fonts

  • Fonts should be put in ~/.fonts.
  • To detect new fonts, run fc-cache -fv. fc-list should list them.
    No sure, but dpkg-reconfigure fontconfig-config; dpkg-reconfigure fontconfig might be needed too.
  • Some fonts, such as the *.pcf ones are, are "bitmap" fonts.
    Run dpkg-reconfigure fontconfig-config and enable them in the last step.
