I realized that on my system it is actually KDE that adds ~/.fonts to
the font path when I log in. So it seems normal that it is missing from
your font path since you do not use KDE. If you want, you can add

xset fp+ ~/.fonts

somewhere in startup/login scripts. However, as far as fontconfig is
concerned, the most important things seems to be that you have this


in /etc/fonts/fonts.conf.

Do you get any output from:

grep -i dina ~/.fonts/fonts.*

Can I download the Dina font from somewhere to experiment myself?
