I would like to copy my whole Windows font dir to Linux, also overwrite excising fonts with the copy from Windows. Since I use /usr/share/fonts and most of them are TTF, would this work?
My Windows partition mount point is /Windows, and I have /usr/share/fonts/TTF specified in my xorg.conf.Code:
# cp /Windows/Fonts/*.ttf /usr/share/fonts/TTF
Would this work? Any permission problems or anything like that?
Would it be possible to simply do the following
Then add /usr/share/fonts/WindowsFonts to xorg.conf using FontPath option. The only problem that I am having thinking about this is say I have Verdana.ttf in both /usr/share/fonts/TTF and /usr/share/fonts/WindowsFonts, which one would be used? Is there a way to set priority, say when a browser is parsing a page that needs Verdana.ttf for X to first look in WindowsFonts dir before all others?Code:
# mkdir /usr/share/fonts/WindowsFonts && cp /Windows/Fonts/*.ttf /usr/share/fonts/WindowsFonts
Also, same idea but adding /Windows/Fonts/ to xorg.conf directly but the above issue still stays with priority.
Anyway, any ideas?
