Python Tkinter on Debian Beaglebone: lost font styling when changed directory name

I have installed non-system fonts onto BeagleBone Black (Debian Jessie) and have been using them in a GUI created using python 2.7 script via Tkinter and tkFont. When I changed the name of the directory my file was stored in, these fonts stopped appearing in my python script GUI!

I installed the fonts into /usr/shared/fonts and they are still there, of course, but somehow I lost the connection to the fonts from my script.

I ran fc-cache -fv and rebooted. Still displaying system font in the GUI.

Am I missing a step?
