    Default Does Gnome have a font-installer

    I've got a bunch of ttf fonts I want to install. The file extensions are .fon and .ttf. In KDE there was a widget for installing fonts, somewhere in Control Panel. I've switched to Gnome for a year while they get KDE a bit more stable. But I can't install all my fonts. Is there a widget in Gnome to do that?

    Thanks

    AFAIK, no :-)

    Just drop (copy) the fonts under your ~/.fonts folder. And relogin :-)

    Yes, that only depends on what you want/cant achieve -> system-wide
    (/usr/share/fonts) or user-scope (~/.fonts) :-)

    Actually, I figured that. But thank you for the clarification.

    For single user systems yeh the hidden .fonts directory is handy.
    For systemwide fonts usr/share/fonts is the place to go.
    a fonts directory is usually standard but if its not on there just create a hidden folder by naming a new folder .fonts
