To remove a font, use the reverse of the procedure by which you installed it. On my machine (also Mepis) I simply put the font into /usr/share/fonts. To remove, just remove....
You don't say what is messed up, but did you try simply selecting the entire document and changing the font?
Ah, now to install it, I right clicked the font and selected install - maybe a bad move.
There does not appear to be a uninstall on the context menu (plus the font itself doesn't seem to show up in /usr/share/fonts which confused me even more! I believe I installed it across system not just user (rather stupidly of me), so possibly this would put it in another directory??
