For instance if I set the `default' face to have family "Aurulent Sans
Mono", Emacs chooses something completely different ("FreeMono" as it

If I select the same font, "Aurulent Sans Mono", at the same size,  in
e.g. gnome-terminal, it uses it.  gnome-terminal, AFAIK, uses fontconfig.

There seem to be quite a few fonts like this, which definitely exist and
work fine in other apps, but which I can't get Emacs to use.


XML is like violence.  If it doesn't solve your problem, you're not
using enough of it.
