Font in fusion on Linux

PostMon Nov 28, 2016 5:47 pm

I'm getting very limited number of fonts in fusion. I have tried to install custom fonts but it didn't show up in fusion's font list. How can I add a custom font ?

I figured out that when you install fonts in Ubuntu, they go into: 

/home/youruser/.local/share/fonts

But Fusion looks in /usr/share/fonts

So you have to manually copy the fonts over to /usr/share/fonts
or go to Fusion Preferences Path Map and change the Fonts: entry to your local folder.

Even better, remove the fonts folder in /home/youruser/.local/share/ and make a symbolic link to the /usr/share/fonts folder

e.g.: ln -s '/usr/share/fonts' '/home/youruser/.local/share/fonts'

Also make sure that your user then has read and write access to /home/youruser/.local/share/font
Pop_OS 18.04, AMD Ryzen Threadripper 2990WX 32-Core, Nvidia GeForce RTX 2080Ti 11GB, 64 Gb Ram, Resolve Studio 15.2, Fusion Studio 9.0.2

Check the directory where your font is installed and add this directory to File/Preferences/Global/Path Map/Defaults/System

You can have multiple directories there by separating them with ';', like this:

Code: Select all
$(FUSION_FONTS);/usr/share/fonts;/home/me/.local/share/fonts

hey
have the same problem in Fusion but inside Davinci Resolve since the downgrade to 15.2.2
My fonts inside Fusion disappeared (still available in Resolve lol). I don't even have a fonts folder inside /home/username/.local/share.

Weird. Don't know how to fix the issue. Have to stay on version 15.2.2 since 15.2.3 and later have alpha using ACES messed up.

Return to Fusion
