Thread: manually install additional fonts

  1. #1

    Default manually install additional fonts

    So, I access to a server using ssh, and I would like to install additional fonts on it (Verdana).
    System is Suse 10.1

    how could I do that?


    tnx

    there's no other fonts in that folder...
    is this because system is 'empty' (no x-win)?

    do I need to restart anything after copying fonts?

    Hi
    Use scp to copy the font to the target machine and then move it to
    the /usr/share/fonts/truetype directory, once that's done
    run fonts-config. Then as a user update your font cache with the
    command fc-cache.

    Trouble is I can't check where it is. !0.1 is no longer supported either. No updates. You should install a newer ver.
