Miss-named fonts
Hi, I'm not sure if anyone is out there... But here goes anyway.

I'm using Gimp on Ubuntu. I've installed two new fonts - 'Omnes Extra light' and 'Omnes Thin' - into this folder:

/home/andy/.local/share/fonts/Unknown Vendor/TrueType/Omnes

But I cannot get Gimp to recognize them as different fonts, or to name them correctly.

First off, they pop up in the Gimp font list with wrong names. So 'omnes-extra-light.ttf' is listed as 'Omnes Light' (which is in fact the name of a different font - that I haven't installed). And 'omnes-thin.ttf' is the same - also incorrectly listed as 'Omnes Light'.

When editing text, both fonts print out identically - which is wrong, they should appear notably different from each other..

I have viewed both fonts in Font Viewer and both are intact and correct. Both have file names that are correct for the font.

Things I have tried:

I have installed both .otf and .ttf versions with no success.

I have tried installing the fonts manually and I've also tried letting Font viewer install them for me.

I have tried putting them in a different folder - ie in /home/andy/.fonts

None of the above work. I'd appreciate any help anyone can offer !
