IMPORTANT: I don't have root access to machine I'm working on. I installed otf font in my home directory using http://tacticalvim.wordpress.com/2010/01/17/installing-fonts-in-your-home-directory-on-fedora-12/ fc-list lists the font. However when I try to set this font as terminal font: Right Click -> Edit Current Profile -> Font It doesn't list the font I recently installed.
Can you guys help me with it?
[EDIT]: It turns out I had to restart terminal to have font listed.
However why does preview for font look like rectangles and letters are smashed together? -- Never mind it was probably because of mucking around too much. Deleted ~/.fonts, recreated it, copied the font and ran fc-cache.
I now have working Inconsolata font in terminal. Thank you all :)
