Hi all,
       I tried installing a truetype font by using the instructions in
https://help.ubuntu.com/community/FontInstallHowto I tried all the
ways but dunno if the font got installed or not.
I also did a sudo fc-cache -f -v and there it does show the font,
here's the output :-

shirish at Mugglewille:/usr/share/fonts/truetype$ sudo fc-cache -f -v

fc-cache: succeeded

Here's the font which it says is installed :-

/usr/share/fonts/truetype/timesbd: caching, 1 fonts, 0 dirs

Is there a way to know for sure if the font is installed or not?

Please lemme know if there is any application or something which makes this
better/easier.

Cheers!
