I sent an e-mail to feedback(a)suse.de asking if it was at all possible
to include an rpm of the extra fonts the gimp has on it's sites.
Sure would be nice.

Put an extra line in /etc/XF86Config something like the myfonts line

Reading some mails on the GIMP mail list, I ran across the procedure
to install some more fonts for not only Gimp, but the system and
StarOffice to use also. Well, I installed the fonts, went to the
shell and issued the command xset fp+ <font directory> and then the
rehash command and all fonts are there! Ok, that went well, but each
time I restart the system, I have to do it all over again? Is there
a way to make it permanent and read the new fonts like it does the
ones the system installs or is that a no-no?

xset fp+ <new font directory>
xset fp rehash
