I actually just did this for my son a couple of days ago.  I created the
directory and copied a font file in.  It was immediately available
without doing anything else.

I am kind of curious though how you happened to reply to an email that
is over a year old.

The thread just showed up in my inbox (gmail) so I didn't look at the dates.  Messages from 2019 should have been deleted (or archived if I thought I might want to refer to them again)  long ago.  Gmail seems to be going through a period of "something is wrong" events, and the total number of messages in my inbox seems to have ballooned.
