Didn’t it work for you in Fedora?

This works for me with LMTX in Fedora.

Add to ~/.bashrc "export OSFONTDIR=~/.fonts/:/usr/share/fonts/" (log out
and log in) and repeat the three other steps from my previous message.

This should work for you (provided that you installed the fonts in any
of the directories added to OSFONTDIR.

I hope it helps,


PS: you can also avoid adding anything to ~/.bashrc by adding soft
symlinks for each font to tex/texmf-fonts/. But you have to add the
links to each font file, not to any directory (for some strange reason,
this doesn’t work in Fedora [at least, for me]).
