View Full Version : [ubuntu] Desperate: New ttf fonts don't appear after installation

September 6th, 2009, 01:34 PM
I am really starting to be desperate.
I copied new fonts to the /usr/share/fonts/truetype-directory and followed the instructions of many tutorials regarding updating the fconfig-cache fc-cache and many other ways - many tutorials on the web tell different ways and i am sometimes not really sure what they are doing.

I also tried installing the fonts to the home/User/.fonts -folder, and also to the home/User/.fonts/truetype -folder, but whatever I do - the fonts are not recognized by my Ubuntu nor by any of the applications.

The Mac eats those fonts flawlessly, and they are indeed ttf-fonts... So i am really desperate. What am I doing wrong?

Happy about hints!
