You need to map the font twice to the generic name. The first so
fontconfig knows it can complete the font with the generic, the second to
tell fonctonfig it can use the font to build the generic

The prefix choice only matters for the second mapping. If you choose a
prefix which is too low your font will be used in monospace before other
more mainstream fonts.

Beware that monolinear does not mean monospace. A monospace font uses the
same width for all letters

Yes, cut and paste is IT's duct tape
