Is your font visible fc-list/fc-match, i.e., is it part of the libfontconfig 
based fonts service? Or is the X server providing the font? Is this function 
(by Miles Bader) showing your font? Is it showing a complete list of fonts? 

(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))

           (let ((fam (buffer-substring (line-beginning-position)
             (when (or (null matching) (string-match matching fam))
