Installing the monaco font is successful but when I use it it changes to cousine. Using this font works on all other distro's i've tried except Elementary OS. It seems i'm not the only one with this issue.

sudo sed -i '/>Monaco/{N;N;N;s/>Cousine/>Monaco/}' /etc/fonts/conf.avail/31-croscore-elementary.conf

  • Thanks that works perfectly! Weird that it doesn't happen automatically when installing.
