getting somewhat weird output with funky non-printables.. like so:

do dpkg-reconfigure fontconfig. It will config allfonts. whenever you
add fonts do this.

Followed your recommendation but this seems to be mostly about font-rendering choices. I saw that it did regenerate fontconfig's font cache but where it went looking for fonts is unclear. For instance if I had copied the MS fonts to ~/msfonts.. how would it have found them..? And where does the famed debian font manager - aka defoma.. come into the picture..?

Anyway, everything seems to be working no different than before I did the "dpkg-reconfigure fontconfig" ... down to the output of fc-list.. still spits out the same unprintable garbage.
