    Where are the fonts?


    Is there a central location as to where fonts are installed, and accessed by programs similar to Windows c:\...\fonts? As far as I can tell there are several places in which programs such as Open Office grab fonts. It appears each program has their own directory.
    I have many TTFs that I would like to be able to use in Linux that I use in Windows all the time.

    try this:

    /usr/share/fonts/

    (I'm using mandrake 9.2, it may be diferente on your system).

    If this directory doesn't exist,
    as root, do: updatedb
    then locate /fonts
    (something's bound to turn up)
