    KDE Fonts, how do I?


    I downloaded a screen file from somewhere, I can't quite remember where but it's not the splash screen its the login screen. There are two images with the package and I would like to use it as my login screen. It has an icon for each of the peices at the bottom. (eg. session, reboot, shutdown). Does anyone know where I need to put these files for the screen to take effect? I downloaded and installed a splash screen for the load of my session and I looked around the files there but I did'nt see anything for it. Please let me know. Thanks!

    - also, where are the system fonts kept. I downloaded some fonts I would like to use they are .ttf files I just need to know where the other fonts are so I can use them as fonts for the words of my desktop.

    yes, I have no idea how to use Linux

    1) What distro & Version
    2) What Window manager? GNOME/KDE/Other?
    3) What format are these files you have download in? is it a .tar.gz, .tar, .zip, or something entirely different?

    You need to unzip/untar them to somewhere. If this is a wallpaper that you want to use behind kdm, just put them into /usr/share/wallpapers. If this pic is a tiny logo inside kdm that you want to use, just configure the login manager to locate that file. By default, that logo is in /usr/share/apps/kdm/pics.
