Need help changing font in Krita 3.2.0 with Ubuntu 16.04.2.


Hello everyone,

I am trying to do certain graphic using Krita and I am unable to change to font I'd like to use. I only have 10 different alternatives. Font I am trying to use is installed and I can use it for example using Libreoffice Write. Font I'd like to use is Truetype. To be specific I don't find more than 6 fonts from Krita and the font I want to use is not in list. I am using text tool with this.

Regards,

Kimmo

the question is very specialized; only krita users can help.
can you break it down for us, so somebody not using krita might help?
i'm not sure why krita wouldn't read ALL system fonts.
krita documentation?

Ok I'll check out some Krita forum to find out more about this thing. The whole problem is somewhat strange but thanks for the tip.

sorry, i didn't mean that we can never help, just that it's more lilely to get help from someone who actually uses krita.
i hope they have a forum.
if not, or you still can't help, feel free to add more information, we'll try our best!

I tried to uninstall Krita and re-install it and now all the fonts work. Don't know why or how. Anyway case solved.

SOLUTION: Re-install Krita from terminal.
