thanks for reporting that.
i dont recall ever having to do any of "mkfontdir inside each directory, xset +fp <path> for each directory, and fc-cache -f". i guess i'm just one of the lucky ones for whome simply placing them in ~/.fonts is sufficient.

did my attempt to split them up into different directories just muck it up?
trying to reproduce here (yeah, my trisquel on the netbook does it the same). [edit: see possible fix at bottom of reply]

are you sure you have the necessities for displaying otb format bitmap fonts? [edit: see possible fix at bottom of reply]

does wastage not show up either? ~ it's not otb format. [edit : oops, did i not include wastage in dbtfc2... i think i meant to]

what os/distro are you on?
iirc, debian(-based) recently(ish) made a change requiring user intervention to restore .otb xwindow bitmap font capability. (i have failed to find the wiki page on that in a timely manner though) [edit: see possible fix at bottom of reply]

now up on https://notabug.org/Digit/dbtfc if that's of any help.


~ ah! 30 tabs and a lot of searching later, and i find this possible fix in the waybackmachine, hope this is what solves it: https://web.archive.org/web/20130917180917/http://crunchbanglinux.org/wiki/howto/font_rendering
see the bit about bitmap fonts? seems some folks have a real aversion to bitmap fonts that they've been getting disabled upstream by default. tsk tsk. - Feb 05 2016

i'm not entirely clear about what you mean, but some fonts are wide, most are as narrow as i could make. these are otb format, bitmap fonts, and as such, wont scale well, if at all.

in slackware, they scale, in all other distros i've tried, they are fixed at the size they are, pixel perfect. i've yet to determine what slackware has set different to perhaps have access to toggle scalability of bitmap fonts. - Apr 06 2015

i find myself once again between screenshot facilities ( i change my wm and other components so often), and so, i put out to you folks a "competition" (of sorts), where u are challenged to present in this comment section, a link to a screenshot of smplgut-q (ideally showing it off in as many parts (scroll bars, trees, buttons, selections, etc) as possible), before i get around to it.

your challenge:

i've used over 400 distinct .iso of gnu operating systems (or bsd, and a few others dotted around).

i currently have in regular use, Toorox, Gentoo, Crunchbang(Debian/sid), Arch, Slitaz and Slackware.

ubuntu has never been a recommendation of mine. not a serious one anyway. but of course, it crops up all over the place (both vanilla and it's derivatives), pimping its unique ways of doing things, which frankly, i see as a subtle and insidious form of soft lock-in, diminishing people's ease of jumping between distros.

not good.

being pissed on is not good.

i knew ubuntu was dead to me came win7. before that statement gives you ideas, know this; i detest proprietary software, and have a special dislike for microsoft considering what few of their many atrocities i know of, but having said that, i still have to point out to people, that development for win7 vs development for ubuntu 10.10, it was microsoft, not canonical, who come out best when it comes to listening to the user-base. :O this is not some exoneration of proprietary/microsoft/windoze, or some damning of freesoftware/opensource/gnu/linux, this is just because .... well, i was about to say because ubuntu failed, but indeed, like the guy said before, it's because shuttleworth loves to piss on us. lol.
