Embedded font, own font: how?

I tried to embed LexiaDaMa into a book with the new function in book convert. I put the ttfs into my ~/.fonts, into the /usr/share/fonts/... and into /opt/calibre/resources/fonts, but with every try I get the message

Do I need to do some additional configuration in calibre to add the font? Linux/Debian/Wheezy with the sudo python... installation 0.9.4. The system tools/openoffice can see the fonts from ~/.fonts and the system directory.

calbre uses fontconfig to get the list of fonts. If the font is visible to fontconfig, it should be visible to calibre as well.

Another thing, the font family you choose has to have a "normal" or "regular" font face. I think Lexia DaMa has only a bold font face, I'll make the error message a little clearer about that in the next release.

Ah, I see. Lexia DaMa has a "Medium" style only:

Code:
/usr/share/fonts/truetype/tt-lexiadama/LexiaDaMa.ttf: Lexia DaMa:style=Medium
/usr/share/fonts/truetype/tt-lexiadama/LexiaDaMa-Bold.ttf: Lexia DaMa:style=Bold
/usr/share/fonts/truetype/tt-lexiadama/LexiaDaMa-BoldItalic.ttf: Lexia DaMa:style=Bold Italic
/usr/share/fonts/truetype/tt-lexiadama/LexiaDaMa-Italic.ttf: Lexia DaMa:style=Italic
Is there a technical difference between "normal" and "Medium" (like "normal" is nothing or no style?)

Medium should be mapped to normal. What does the following return:

calibre-debug -c "from calibre.utils.fonts import fontconfig; print fontconfig.fonts_for_family('Lexia DaMa').keys()"

Never mind, I was wrong, medium is not mapped to normal. http://cgit.freedesktop.org/fontconf...tconfig.h#n126
