Installing 09-texlive-fonts.conf to /etc/fonts/conf.d on Ubuntu 16.04 breaks fonts in Firefox - TeX - LaTeX Stack Exchange
I noticed that after I symlinked the 09-texlive-fonts.conf file from /etc/fonts/conf.d it interfered with fonts system wide, notably firefox. On all the fonts in the header were showing 'squares' and in other applications font glyphs were not even rendering.

Is there any way to install the TexLive fonts without interfering with the system?

Fonts for Scholars: the Cardo Font
Cardo is a large Unicode font specifically designed for the needs of classicists, Biblical scholars, medievalists, and linguists. Since it may be used to prepare materials for publication, it also contains features that are required for high-quality typography, such as ligatures, text figures (also known as old style numerals), true small capitals and a variety of punctuation and space characters. It may also be used to document and discuss the features of Unicode that are applicable to the these disciplines, as we work to help colleagues understand the value (and limitations) of Unicode.
