# Ubuntu – Using installed fonts in gnome-terminal

fontsgnome-terminal

Recently I have been messing with gnome-terminal to make it look more appealing. I tried using installed fonts that were in my ~/.fonts folder (installed with Font Viewer) but when I edit the gnome-terminal profile, the installed font doesn't show up.

The font that I am trying to use is cure.se.ttf, and every other program that allows font changing works, as well as it being intstalled globally.

Am I installing them wrong, or is there a certian place they need to be?

• What worked for me is putting the font files in ~/.local/share/fonts and then running,

\$ sudo fc-cache -vf ~/.local/share/fonts


The fonts in ~/.local/share/fonts are available for all apps now.
