It worked right away. Thanks very much. I spent days downloading and reinstalling FP in different manners.

Hi, thanks for the bug report. Someone else mentioned that Debian does not have a ~/.fonts directory. Could you confirm whether this directory is there or not?

(If it's not there, make it. Fonty should work again.)

Let me know so I can put some code in to do the same.

FontyPython does not install pogs. When prompting it from shell i get the following text while trying to install one:

root@debian:/home/marcelo# fontypython
Copying fonts from Cantarell to cantarell
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "/usr/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/fontypythonmodules/gui_Right.py", line 235, in multiClick
File "/usr/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/fontypythonmodules/fontcontrol.py", line 788, in install
if linkfont(fi, fi.glyphpaf, linkDestination): #link the font and if True, it was not overlapped, so also do Type1 step 2
File "/usr/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/fontypythonmodules/fontcontrol.py", line 757, in linkfont
os.symlink(frompaf, topaf) #Should do the trick.
OSError: [Errno 2] No such file or directory

OS: Debian Wheezy, netinst (small installation)
(Its thge first time I install Debian like that and the firt time to have problems with FP; so I don't know it this is indeed a bug)
