Sometime people ask me how to install artwiz (pixels) fonts in Ubuntu, because many time ago they was removed from repo. This method work for me from 8.04 to 10.04.

1. You must download fonts from here…
and extract archive to /home/USERNAME/.fonts (I download artwiz-aleczapka-en-1.3.tar.bz2)

2. Open terminal and type:
sudo rm /etc/fonts/conf.d/70-no-bitmaps.conf

3. sudo fc-cache -fv

4. sudo dpkg-reconfigure fontconfig

5. sudo dpkg-reconfigure fontconfig-config

6. Restart X and enjoy!

Thanks for help AWWAKUM (Original post…)
