Hi michael!
Ha Ha Ha halarious !! *NewsFlash* Linux end user gets hit with Microsoft
License agreement when trying to download TType Fonts !!

Ahh Thats a good one , I never heard of that before this, very entertaining .

BTW you can just copy some TType Fonts from any word processor cd, or maybe,
even those AOL disks they used to send to everyone, by mail.
Get a CD, and mount -t iso9660 /dev/cdrom, and look for Fonts directories,
I'm going to try this as well, when I get some spare time.
Then copy them to /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/Fonts/truetype, or Type1 , now in kde2,
setup fonts with /preferences/look & feel/fonts - follow the kde help, or use
the what's this '?' for info.

I can see why someone would want to give a try to the xloadttfonts tool, havn't
tried it yet myself, I just did like above. Also I didn't realize M$ would hit
us with some silly lisence agreement just for some free fonts.

well, good luck, and btw they work nicely when set up.

John WM

sorry for the pun, but it was just too funny to pass up, M$ has their hands
in the mix wherever we look.
