I remember the days, not so long ago, when I could drop new fonts in my
~/.fonts directory and run
fc-cache. The next time I instantiated a GNOME font chooser dialog somewhere, I would see my new fonts. It seems that in GNOME 2.20, I now need to restart my entire GNOME session to have the fonts show up. What is up with that? There must be a way around this. Anyone? Anyone?
