Generally, fonts should be placed under /usr/share/fonts. If not, it's
better if they are registered with defoma. This way they'll be available
to most applications through fontconfig.

TeX does its own stuff with fonts, and it's not enough to drop a font in
the TeX directory to make it available to TeX documents. It would be
possible, but quite complicated, using defoma.
