the original package installed to /usr/share/fonts/ipa for some reason and there must be a way to make it work.
If you take these steps, I think the fonts will be found and made active. You have to do them as root.
* Move the fonts to /usr/share/fonts/ipa. In /usr/share/fonts/ipa run these commands at a terminal prompt:
* Edit /etc/X11/xorg.conf by adding in Section "Files":
* Go to /etc/fonts and copy fonts.conf to local.conf. Edit local.conf by adding this line to
<!-- Font directory list -->
* As root run fc-cache
* Restart the X server and your window manager.
Your added fonts should now appear in the list and be available to all users.
It may be that all these steps aren't necessary, but when I do them all I do have the fonts available system wide. I think you can see why I prefer to simply put the fonts into ~/.fonts.
Of course, if you want to give this a try, you should move the fonts from /usr/share/fonts/TTF to /usr/share/fonts/ipa.
