RE: adding fonts == exercise in frustration

Comments in that file indicate you should not edit it as it can be overwritten.
Local customizations are evidently loaded from the files in /etc/fonts/conf.d
dir. The 51-local.conf file there seems to load in a local.conf file, which is
the same name other tutorials mentioned. (I don't mind the indirection as long
as it works.) I created this, with my path, as you describe.

I created the fonts.dir and fonts.scale, and they contain the descriptor of my
fonts. When I run fc-cache, it mentions the dirs it's updating, but I don't
see my new one listed. Neither does fc-list show the fonts.
