Fonts can be installed by copying the appropriate .otf or .ttf file to ~/.fonts.

Working with font-config

  • Dereference a font alias with `fc-match`:
[schwarzgerat](0) $ fc-match sans-serif
DejaVuSans.ttf: "DejaVu Sans" "Book"
[schwarzgerat](0) $ 
  • What font is used for this character?
#!/bin/sh
set -e
CHAR="$1"
for i in sans serif mono ; do
  FC_DEBUG=4 pango-view --font=$i -q -t "$CHAR" 2>&1 | \
    grep -o 'family: "[^"]\+' | cut -c 10- | tail -n 1
done
  • Clear font cache/indexes: fc-cache -f -v
