You've got to copy the fonts to a place visible to your JVM. On my 
laptop (Ubuntu) that is /usr/lib/j2sdk1.5-sun/jre/lib/fonts. Under 
/usr/share/fonts the JVM seems to find all the fonts that came with the 
system, but none of the ones I added later. I don't know why this is or 
how to make other fonts in those locations visible to Java, which does 
not appear to use fontconfig.
