Installed fonts don't appear in Doom Font Genesis or GIMP

Hi all,
I've been trying to import a font into Doom but I had too many issues with Spidey's Doom Crap, and it was a royal pain trying to fix it with GIMP, which has been buggy for me for some reason lately (maybe I need to reinstall or update). GIMP doesn't show my fonts, I have to create an image with the font to even import it. Doom Font Genesis shows quite a bit of potential, but it does not currently load the fonts I want either. Spidey's Doom Crap does, and LibreOffice does, but not GIMP or Doom Font Genesis. I already tried clearing the font cache to no avail and I've gotten desperate enough to finally ask, who would have thought the font would be the most difficult part of my mod? haha

I remember having to make sure the fonts were being installed into the System font directory to get Doom Font Genesis to work.
