Re: About installing TrueType Fonts



Hi,

If you want to install the font for your own use, you should put it in
the .fonts subdirectory of your homedirectory, and then run 'fc-cache
-fv' as your own user. You should still not change the mode of
the /var/cache/fontconfig directory. Although the fc-cache utility might
complain a bit, it's not an error, and your font should still work.

Now, why didn't fc-cache cache fonts and wasn't I able to use new fonts without changing permission?

Thanks,
Makoto
