    Installing fonts


    Hi, i'm trying to install a true type font on my computer, now i have found a guide to do this, but it says at some point you need to run

    Code:
    ttmkfdir > fonts.scale
    mkfontdir
    but i get the following error when i try the ttmkfdir > fonts.scale line:
    -bash: ttmkfdir: command not found
    i have searched YaST for ANYTHING to do with ttmkfdir, and there's only ONE thing that came up, and that was installed. Does anyone know what i need to do?
