Re: How to install and manage fonts under Fedora?



Valent:
http://www.binrev.com/forums/blog/xklaatux/index.php?showentry=35

or in a nutshell:
Go to System > Preferences > Look and Feel > Appearance

The Appearance controls appear, and at the top there is a tab labeled "Fonts". Click into this tab. At the bottom of this window there is a button "Details", which opens up a new window, at the bottom of which is another button: "Go to Font Folder".

Your system's font folder then opens. Place all the fonts you've downloaded into this folder. The fonts themselves are the files ending in .ttf so don't try to add any of the .txt or .rtf files that may have accompanied the fonts in your download. These are typically notes from the font designer about the license or where to find more fonts, and so on.

You may need to restart X after this; I haven't used Gnome in a while.

Hope that helps.

for an unique user you can just create a new hidden folder called ".fonts" and put your stuff inside

have fun =]

Hi,
I'm trying to install and manage some additional ttf and type1 fonts I
found online on some free fonts websites. I see no way to use gnome
tools or any fedora made tool to install fonts. Is this a bug or a
feature? :)

I tried "fonts:///" but that feature seams missing from Gnome 2.24 in Fedora 10.

How do you install and manage additional fonts? I know that there are
fonts in fedora repositories but I'm not talking interested in using
yum to install fonts.

Cheers,
Valent.
