This looks like a packaging error. Yaakov, shouldn't installing
xorg-x11-fonts-* create /etc/X11/fontpath.d if it doesn't exist? From
it appears that terminus-fonts is the only package that creates this
They do already, and they show up in the search.
I was referring to the fact that for terminus-fonts we see
2015-09-10 19:57 0 etc/
2015-09-10 19:57 0 etc/X11/
2015-09-10 19:57 0 etc/X11/fontpath.d/
2015-09-10 19:57 0 etc/X11/fontpath.d/terminus:unscaled ->
whereas for xorg-x11-fonts-dpi75 we see only
2015-09-10 20:44 0
and similarly for the other xorg-x11-fonts-* packages.
I interpreted this as meaning that /etc/X11/fontpath.d wouldn't get created, but
maybe I was wrong.
In any case, it apparently didn't get created for the OP, and I had the same
experience. On the other hand, it gets created when I manually unpack the
tarball, so I don't know what's going on.
