Font Troubleshoot - Spaces between every character. [SOLVED]

After updating my computer with

sudo pacman -Syu

My general setting's font Inconsolata have crashed. Now, every character have long spaces between them. How could I load a new font?

I seem unable to set any font with

setfont

And,

setfont -h

says that

/usr/share/kbd/*/

is my current directory. So, I have called, for example, cybercafe.fnt.gz, as

setfont cybercafe

I get: "Couldn't get a file descriptor referring to the console"


(The trouble is only persistent within my own system, dmenu, zsh terminal etc)

"setfont" is for the console, not the graphical environment.

Re: Font Troubleshoot - Spaces between every character. [SOLVED]

Thank you. It worked, as described in the topic/post you linked.

I would like to say that I did research with keywords like: font troubleshoot, font error, font broke, font problem;

None of them lead me to this last post.
