broken font rendering (new fonts)


Hello,
I installed MX-17.1_x64 Horizon with Xfce 4.12.3.
All up to date

I am trying to add new fonts, unfortunately all look like in the attached picture.
This is the only distro that has problem with new fonts so I am sure that the issue is not related to the font quality (all fonts that I want to install are commercial).



I wonder is someone has a suggestion how to solve this problem?

Thank you

Ok,
so this is definitely a bug in MX-17.1_x64 Horizon with Xfce 4.12.3

I just installed MX-18b1_x64 Continuum and the issue is gone (so all my fonts are visible/accessible).
This is really strange: users do not install fonts by hand (better quality than free)?

Anyway, I would assume that this bug should be fixed in MX-17.1_x64 Horizon.

Thank you

the fontconfig system just got an update, so it should be identical to the setup in mx18 now.

but it looks to me like it might have been a cache problem originally.

fc-cache -r

can be used to manually update the font cache if you manually install fonts.

Well,
it seems that the only way to install new fonts manually is to create ~/.fonts
and copy new fonts there.
This folder was available in MXLinux 17, but it is not available in MXLinux 18.
