It may hate me;
[john at cosimo ~]$ fc-cache
[john at cosimo ~]$ ls -l .fonts
-rw-r--r-- 1 john john 157904 Oct 1 19:13 bloofs__.ttf
-rw-rw-r-- 1 john john 22084 Oct 1 19:13 cenobyte.ttf
-rw-rw-r-- 1 john john 1253 Nov 25 13:31 fonts.cache-1
-rw-rw-r-- 1 john john 23408 Nov 25 12:03 kates7x14.pcf
[john at cosimo ~]$ fc-list | grep -i kates
Aha. That font was based on a much older (rasterman) font, Nexus. I
didn't change the name in the .bcf file - and Nexus is now how it's known
on my system.
[john at cosimo .fonts]$ fc-list | grep -i nexus
Phew. Thanks Padraig!
