Context: When I go on a website that requires a font from the Lucida font family, I get this kind of result:
This is most annoying, as xkcd uses this font everywhere, and so as is the website is quite ugly…
So, I have tried the usual way (with home-manager, because I use it):
nixpkgs.config.allowUnfree = true;
fonts.fontconfig.enable = true;
I then run
home-manager switch, it all runs fine but the font is nowhere to be found. I try to reload the font cache with
fc-cache -f, but it doesn’t do any good. I try rebooting my machine, still nothing.
I have looked for the font with the Font software (packaged with Gnome), but it doesn’t find it. And the websites are still ugly. Does anyone have a hint on what to do?
EDIT: in further investigation I have found that
$ fc-match Lucida luRS08-ISO8859-1.pcf.gz: "Lucida" "Sans" $ fc-match LucidaTypewriter luRS08-ISO8859-1.pcf.gz: "LucidaTypewriter" "Sans"
but I don’t really know what that could mean…
