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?
Open Yast-Software Management
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:
Programming and Linux: Install MS fonts in openSUSE 11.1
Thank you for your quick respond. I have followed your instructions and everything works!
