Installing Fonts on Linux

November 7, 2009 ·

I'm posting this as a reminder to myself since I've had to do this twice in the last few weeks and have to Google it each time... To install TrueType Fonts on Linux so that Java can access them ought to be as simple as copying them to $JAVA_HOME/lib/fonts/ but it isn't. You (also) have to go through the following process to make them valid system fonts: Installing fonts on Linux I don't think the xfs restart is needed (since both of the servers I've installed fonts on lately have not had xfs running in the first place). This process was required to make the fonts visible to the Alagad Image Component (which is now free open source!). Your mileage may vary of course.
