I recently did a CLI install of ubuntu and installed Openbox. I also installed the art-wiz fonts as per these instructions: http://urukrama.wordpress.com/2008/05/25/artwiz-fonts-on-ubuntu-hardy/

I am able to use the snap font in conky and in pypanel, but not in my Openbox menu. When I use Obconf to select a font, Snap is listed and I can select it, but the font does not change even if I refresh the menu.

Any ideas on how I can use this font? I was able to do so with Archlinux.

Thanks

edit: rebooted and it worked.

As you've found out by now, and as mentioned towards the end of my blog post, you need to restart X before you can use the fonts.
