Remove the .txt extension of USE_ALT_FONTS so it's has none.

Here's a link to a proper alt fonts file, if that helps. The link is courtesy of user xtine, they were nice enough to share it.

If anybody needs to edit font names (such as postscript name, font family name, typeface name etc) because one wants to install different subsets of the same font - there's no need to install a full fledged font editor. There's a small free java utility that does the job and is just about a megabyte in size.
http://sourceforge.net/projects/ttfedit/
Looks abandoned but works. Tested on Ubuntu font family.
