some bitmap fonts are discovered by fc-cache, some are not

[Date Prev][Date Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next][Date Index][Thread Index]


I've installed all XFree86-ISO8859-2-1 fonts

# ls /usr/share/fonts/X11/100dpi/lutRS18*

But 0 fonts are found with fc-cache

# fc-cache -f -v /usr/share/fonts/X11/100dpi
/usr/share/fonts/X11/100dpi: caching, new cache contents: 0 fonts, 0 dirs

To experiment, I copied a font over to the same directory:

# cd /usr/share/fonts/X11/100dpi
# wget
# fc-cache -f -v /usr/share/fonts/X11/100dpi
/usr/share/fonts/X11/100dpi: caching, new cache contents: 1 fonts, 0 dirs

In order to be sure the single newly found font is the one I just downloaded:

# fc-list | grep 100dpi
/usr/share/fonts/X11/100dpi/lutRS18.pcf: LucidaTypewriter:style=Sans

Yes, it is.

The question is of course why the fonts I installed is not recongised
but the one I downloaded is.

I installed it on Ubuntu 18.04 through:

# apt-get install xfonts-100dpi-transcoded
