I am using Ubuntu Mate 20.04. I want to use the Fixed 6×13 font in the terminal (not xterm). When I try to change the terminal font, the Fixed fonts are not in the list of available fonts. However,
mate-font-viewer and and
xfontsel show the Fixed fonts.
I followed the instructions how to enable this font in How can I activate bitmap fonts? and https://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1270870. None of the provided solutions seems to work. This is what I did so far:
- I installed the
70-no-bitmaps.confand added the
70-force-bitmaps.confsymbolic link. I tried both, one at a time.
- Following the instructions on https://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1270870 I specifically enabled the
Fixedfont family by adding a
- On every trial I ran
fc-cache -fand rebooted my system.
How can I use these fonts on Ubuntu 20.04?
