    This is because that directory is a root directory and root access is cut off by default in most linuxes.
    But I thought that the gnome version has a font installer that can install fonts systemwide though, but maybe you are not using 11.2... I dont know, you didnt say what version of opensuse you have so I am taking a guess you have 11.2

    Hi
    You need to use sudo and if it's got a space in the name use a \ eg;
    Code:
    sudo cp FFF\ Tusj.ttf /usr/share/fonts/truetype/
    sudo /usr/sbin/fonts-config
    fc-cache
    the second command updates the fonts cache for the syste, the secon run
    as your user updates the local one.
