Thread: Installing external fonts

  1. #1

    Default Installing external fonts

    When I upgraded to 13.2 somehow half of my wine disappeared. I removed everything so that I can do a fresh installation. The only reason I need wine is to run my MT4 platform. To install metattrader I am following these instructions http://articles.mql4.com/416 To add the fonts I need I followed 14.1 http://doc.opensuse.org/documentatio...ontconfig.html I used bash as super user to move them from my home directory to my fonts directory
    Code:
     mv /home/warren/fontforge-20120731-b /usr/share/fonts
    Is this all I need to do to add fonts to my Linux system?

    Basically yes.
    You could also put them to ~/.fonts instead to not have to be root to install them, but this would only work for that particular user of course.

    Btw, KDE does have a font installer included, see "Configure Desktop" (aka systemsettings)->"System Administration->"Font Management".

    Thanks Wolfi

    The reason I asked is because I was battling to believe that it was so easy to do.

    You could also open konqueror

    type fonts://

    ....

    I don't really get much chance to work with the terminal therefore when the opportunity arises I try to complete the task with the terminal before using a GUI.
