Fixing the fonts in Oracle Java 8, Debian

Posted 06-19-2014 at 03:43 PM by the dsc (linux-related notes)
Tags fonts, java

That was funny. I had the same problem some time ago, in an earlier install, and then accidentally stumbled in my own answer to the problem, and I didn't even remember that I had solved it before, much less how I did it. That's why I need this blog. :-/
