Description of problem:
I am trying to add fonts to a F9 system as a normal user. The tool gnome-appearance-properties allows me to manage themes, backgrounds, fonts and interfaces.
Unfortunately, there is no way in the fonts panel to be add one or more fonts to the system - whether specific to the user or to making it system wide.
I need to su to root and add the fonts to /usr/share/fonts directory which I think is not a convenient way to do things.
I have not experimented with placing fonts as a normal user into $HOME/.fonts, but that does not make it available globally if it works.
I guess I am requesting for a button to be added in the gnome-appearance-properties' fonts panel to add fonts. The choices would be local (as default) to the user and and global provided it is authorized.
