Fonts

Fonts in the form of otf and ttf files can be added to the system either per user into ~/.local/share/fonts/ or system wide into /usr/local/share/fonts/. To list all fonts that are known to the system:

$ fc-list -f '%{file}\n' | sort
[...]
/home/kayon/.local/share/fonts/muli/Muli-BlackItalic.ttf
/home/kayon/.local/share/fonts/muli/Muli-Black.ttf
/home/kayon/.local/share/fonts/muli/Muli-BoldItalic.ttf
/home/kayon/.local/share/fonts/muli/Muli-Bold.ttf
[...]
When adding fonts to /usr/local/share/fonts/ may need the font cache to be refreshed:
$ fc-cache -f -v

The files within the directory can be organised, per font family for example, into separate sub-directories.
