Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 77587
Truetype fonts not seen by font selector
Last modified: 2015-01-07 19:01:36 EST
The gnome font selector at
redhat menu -> preferences -> font
does not list any of my True Type fonts even though I've installed them in a
couple of ways. First, I've copied them from my win2k partition and notified
xft about them i.e.
cp /win2k/WINDOWS/FONTS/* /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/msTrueType
ttmkfdir > fonts.scale
and then adding the line:
to my /etc/X11/fs/config file. After this step, galeon is able to display with,
for example the georgia TTF. However, georgia doesn't show up in the gnome font
The second way I tried to install fonts was to make a symbolic link in my home
Please ignore this bug. Somehow, galeon is submitting when I hit the tab key!

Not a bug, just a FAQ answered a number of times on psyche-list.
(Short answer, put the ttf fonts in /usr/share/fonts or ~/.fonts
and run fc-cache)
