Editing font's title


I have some patched fonts.

https://github.com/Lokaltog/vim-powe.../Patched-fonts

How can I change their title? Some of them have the same title as fonts I already have, and I suspect that's why I am seeing only one in the list. I do not know if I am using a patched or unpatched font right now. I would like to append "patched" to their names.

I've tried opening both in vim. There's a lot of non ascii characters. It's similar to opening an executable file in a text editor. There's some strings in it also.

I don't think that this is an easy thing. You may need a font editor, if I read this link accurately: http://www.truetype-typography.com/ttspec.htm

You may find more information here: http://fontforge.org/

It was only my guess why I cannot see Ubuntu Mono Fonts patched for powerline in gnome-terminal

Code:
bullshark@beastlinux ~ $ fc-list | grep -iP 'ubuntu.*?mono'
/home/bullshark/.fonts/UbuntuMono-BI-Powerline.ttf: Ubuntu Mono for Powerline:style=Bold Italic
/usr/share/fonts/truetype/ubuntu-font-family/UbuntuMono-R.ttf: Ubuntu Mono:style=Regular
/home/bullshark/.fonts/UbuntuMono-B-Powerline.otf: Ubuntu Mono,Ubuntu Mono for Powerline:style=Bold,BoldForPowerline
/home/bullshark/.fonts/UbuntuMono-RI-Powerline.ttf: Ubuntu Mono for Powerline:style=Italic,ItalicForPowerline
/home/bullshark/.fonts/UbuntuMono-BI-Powerline.otf: Ubuntu Mono,Ubuntu Mono for Powerline:style=Bold Italic
/home/bullshark/.fonts/UbuntuMono-R-Powerline.ttf: Ubuntu Mono for Powerline:style=Regular,RegularForPowerline
/home/bullshark/.fonts/UbuntuMono-B-Powerline.ttf: Ubuntu Mono for Powerline:style=Bold,BoldForPowerline
/home/bullshark/.fonts/UbuntuMono-RI-Powerline.otf: Ubuntu Mono,Ubuntu Mono for Powerline:style=Italic,ItalicForPowerline
/usr/share/fonts/truetype/ubuntu-font-family/UbuntuMono-B.ttf: Ubuntu Mono:style=Bold
/home/bullshark/.fonts/UbuntuMono-R-Powerline.otf: Ubuntu Mono,Ubuntu Mono for Powerline:style=Regular,RegularForPowerline
/usr/share/fonts/truetype/ubuntu-font-family/UbuntuMono-BI.ttf: Ubuntu Mono:style=Bold Italic
/usr/share/fonts/truetype/ubuntu-font-family/UbuntuMono-RI.ttf: Ubuntu Mono:style=Italic
bullshark@beastlinux ~ $
I'm not really certain why they are showing with fc-list but not under gnome-terminal font settings.
