Put them somewhere the X server can find them, if necessary create the fonts.* 
files and encodings.dir, extend if necessary the X server's font path, make it 
rehash the fonts – and check! (xlsfonts, xfontsel)
Make them also available to the libfontconfig service and put them into its 
cache (with fc-cache) – and check! (fc-list, fc-match)

Inside GNU Emacs you can use this code from Miles Bader to check whether GNU 
Emacs sees the fonts:

;;; ----------------------------------------------------------------
;;; list-fonts-display via font-config
(defun list-fonts-display (&optional matching)
     "Display a list of font-families available via font-config, in a new 
   If the optional argument MATCHING is non-nil, only font families
   matching that regexp are displayed; interactively, a prefix
   argument will prompt for the regexp.
   The name of each font family is displayed using that family, as
   well as in the default font (to handle the case where a font
   cannot be used to display its own name)."
       (and current-prefix-arg
            (read-string "Display font families matching regexp: "))))
     (let (families)
         (shell-command "fc-list : family" t)
         (goto-char (point-min))
         (while (not (eobp))
           (let ((fam (buffer-substring (line-beginning-position)
             (when (or (null matching) (string-match matching fam))
               (push fam families)))
       (setq families
             (sort families
                   (lambda (x y) (string-lessp (downcase x) (downcase y)))))
       (let ((buf (get-buffer-create "*Font Families*")))
         (with-current-buffer buf
           (dolist (family families)
             ;; We need to pick one of the comma-separated names to
             ;; actually use the font; choose the longest one because some
             ;; fonts have ambiguous general names as well as specific
             ;; ones.
             (let ((family-name
                    (car (sort (split-string family ",")
                               (lambda (x y) (> (length x) (length y))))))
                   (nice-family (replace-regexp-in-string "," ", " family)))
               (insert (concat (propertize nice-family
                                           'face (list :family family-name))
                               " (" nice-family ")"))
           (goto-char (point-min)))
         (display-buffer buf))))
;; --------------------------------------------------------
