[NTG-context] External fonts handling

In my previous message I wrote that I had the same problem.

I solved it by these steps:

in .bashrc:


cd $HOME/context

rsync -ptv rsync://contextgarden.net/minimals/setup/first-setup.sh .

./first-setup.sh --modules=all

Note: In contextgarden the last command reads:

sh ./first-setup.sh --modules=all

I guess that my font directory was never read by the install script
because I use bash not sh.

So make sure that your font directories are well exported whatever shell
you use. I am not an expert in this.

A second note:

Ubuntu installs new fonts into the directory


Maybe such a hint somewhere in the garden would help.
