Thread: Installing fonts in Gnome desktop

  1. #1

    Default Installing fonts in Gnome desktop

    opensuse v11.2

    The Gnome help describes how to install fonts: copy the font files to </usr/share/fonts>. I have some Type1 fonts with PFB, PFM, AFM and sometimes INF face files. The only ones I see in the <Type1> directory are AFM and PFA.

    Which font files does Gnome actually require? Is a PFA needed? Are the font files moved/deleted from </usr/share/fonts/> after installation?

    Is there a more obvious way to install fonts in Gnome?

    It does not matter what extensions there are? And can you remove the folders after installation?
