Sometime people ask me how to install artwiz (pixels) fonts in Ubuntu, because many time ago they was removed from repo. This method work for me from 8.04 to 10.04.

1. You must download fonts from here artwizaleczapka.sourceforge.ne…
and extract archive to /home/USERNAME/.fonts (I download artwiz-aleczapka-en-1.3.tar.bz2)

2. Open terminal and type:
sudo rm /etc/fonts/conf.d/70-no-bitmaps.conf

3. sudo fc-cache -fv

4. sudo dpkg-reconfigure fontconfig

5. sudo dpkg-reconfigure fontconfig-config

6. Restart X and enjoy!

Thanks for help AWWAKUM (Original post lamernotes.blogspot.com/2009/0…

Hello. I created this post for Ubuntu 10.04. For now I don't use pixel-fonts. And I know nothing about xfontsel, sorry.
Более подробно я смогу сказать на русском языке (извините за мою предубежденность что Вам он будет понятен)

Might be they've not been maintained/updated in some time.

Maybe... But it's just fonts :) How they can be all time updated? It's not real. Just install and use)
But it's not my business. Just another confusion for users.

And sorry for my bad english((
