    Default FONTS - How to install?

    Hello,

    Can someone please tell, where to get and how to install fonts on openSUSE 11.1. I'm using KDE desktop. Anyway I would like to import fonts to /usr/share/fonts .. hope this is the right location? do I just copy a folder to above mentioned location?

    Also I need to use those fonts in GIMP, openoffice, mail client ...

    Is there some special way to import fonts or all above apps will see them automatically?

    Thanks

    Open Yast-Software Management
    search: fetchmsttfonts

    this will drag in all M$ font's

    Otherwise just create a folder for your font collection eg; /My_Sucky_Fonts and copy to /usr/share/fonts/
    Then use the Configure Desktop to link to the new .dir

    You can install new fonts from:
    Kickoff menu -> Personal Settings -> General(tab) -> Font installer.

    If you want to install M$ fonts, follow this howto:
