Step 1: Where Are Fonts Stored in Linux Mint
Depending on the installation fonts in Linux Mint are located in:
- system fonts
- standard location for fonts
- fonts installed with Font Manager
The font configuration is stored in:
/etc/fonts/fonts.conf. From this file you can find the next:
<!-- Font directory list --> <dir>/usr/share/fonts</dir> <dir>/usr/local/share/fonts</dir> <dir prefix="xdg">fonts</dir> <!-- the following element will be removed in the future --> <dir>~/.fonts</dir> <!--
Step 2: How to Find Font Location in Linux Mint
If you need to search for a given font which is not in the standard places. Then you can try with next commands (searching for font named bangers):
- first command is useful for custom fonts
find / -iname "*bangers*"
- this command is good for system fonts like mono
fc-list | grep "mono"
