After installing this package and regenerating the font-cache with

sudo fc-cache --really-force

I can't select the bitmap font. fc-list shows the following:

> fc-list | grep -i siji
/usr/share/fonts/misc/siji.bdf: Siji:style=Regular
/usr/share/fonts/misc/siji.ttf: siji:style=Medium

But I'm having trouble getting the bitmap font to match:

> fc-match "Siji:style=Regular"
siji.ttf: "siji" "Medium"

> fc-match "Siji:pixelsize=10"
siji.ttf: "siji" "Medium"

> fc-match "Siji Regular:pixelsize=10"
DejaVuSans.ttf: "DejaVu Sans" "Book"

As you can see, fc-match always finds the TrueType font. The problem with this is that I'm using Siji for icons in my Polybar and the TrueType font is blurry at that size. Disabling antialiasing with

font-2 = "Siji:pixelsize=10:antialias=false;1"

fixes the blur but introduces aliasing artifacts. This is not a problem with the bitmap font.

Current workaround: Remove /usr/share/fonts/siji.ttf
