I'm trying to install these bitmap fonts: http://font.gohu.org/
I downloaded the compressed PCF files and extracted them to /usr/share/fonts, Then ran
sudo fc-cache -fv.
The fonts weren't showing up in any program's font options.
I tried the same but with true type fonts; same result.
I tried using
~/.fonts as my font directory; still no change
I tried using Mint's inbuilt font installer (by double clicking on the font file), and it says "Install Failed" when I click on the Install button. I've tried renaming the
.pcf.gz files to .pcf but with the same results.
I tried doing all of the above and then rebooting my system and I still can't see the fonts in any programs.
