I installed a font called Caribbean Island for some web development, but decided that I didn't like it. I later found out that Chromium was replacing the fonts on some webpages (such as all gawker sites), and it looks very ugly. How do I get rid of this thing?

Things I've tried, but didn't come up with anything relevant:

  • Searching the entire system for anything with the words 'caribbean' or 'island'
  • Opened synaptic and did a search for 'ttf-'
  • sudo apt-get remove ttf-caribbean-island with every other combination of dashes and syntax you can think of.

Best case scenario: a way to completely reset all of the fonts.

Any help here?
