After upgrading to Emacs 27.1, my default font changed to adobe courier. I would like to use Anonymous Pro or Inconsolata, but attempts to change it using
M-x customize-face RET default fail. I am at a loss to describe the behavior as it seems to me irregular and I am not sure where to begin. Setting it to Anonymous Pro or Inconsolata, which so far as I can tell are in fact installed on my system and go by those names, causes the font to fall back to a serif font that looks like times. I am using the KDE Font Management utility to see what fonts are installed. Running
xfontsel to look at which fonts are installed gives a different list, but entering information from it produces indeterminate effects---the font does change, but I can't tell if it's falling back to courier or a default serif font. So far as I can tell, it usually does make the right change, which I can test for instance if I use
etl for the foundry and
fixed for the family. The emacs font matches what that font looks like in the xfontsel menu.
So---as should be clear---not sure where to begin troubleshooting.
I'm using Emacs 27.1, on OpenSuse Leap 15.2, KDE.
