    True Type Fonts


    These are the steps I've taken to install TTF on my machine.
    1. mkdir /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/Truetype
    2. cp /tmp/ttf/*.ttf /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/Truetype
    3. cd /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/Truetype
    4. ttmkfdir > fonts.scale
    5. mkfontdir

    After following all these steps, it's clear that I have more fonts available in Mozilla. However, I don't see these new fonts for KDE and the window manager. When I look at Redhat 8 and how clean it looks, I often wonder if it's possible to tweak my system to make it look as clean. Is this possible or is it just a dream? I'm using Debian (stable) with KDE 2.2.

    1. chkfontpath
    2. ttmkfdir > fonts.scale OR ttmkfdir -c -p > fonts.scale
    3. mkfontdir
    4. xset fp rehash
    5. service xfs restart

    It worked on mine.

    Regards.

    From the directory where the ttf fonts are so if the fonts are in /usr/share/fonts/ttf then be in the /usr/share/fonts/ttf dirctory.
