Re: [SLE] Using True Type fonts
Another way that works (once you have the font server working) is to go to
your windows partition or windows box on the network (assuming you have
access to one) and either add the dir to your font path. Or take the simple
route like I did and click the font dir in the file manager, select all,
then drag and drop links of the windows .ttf files in your linux font dir.
When you do that, all the fonts will appear in your application font
dialogs. Since I use Word Perfect Office 2k, all those fonts appear in all
the app dialogs for all the word perfect applications. Pretty nice too
since Word Perfect shows you a sample sentence using each font as you pass
the mouse over it. Should work for any app that supports true type fonts
though.
