Adding Fonts Debian And Linux

The Fast Way

To add fonts quickly to your system, create a .fonts directory in your home directory:

$ mkdir /home/myname/.fonts

Then add the fonts you want to directory for them to be available immediately.

$ cp old-ttf-fonts.ttf ~/.fonts

This asjavascript:void(0)sumes you have already downloaded the fonts or copied them from the old Windows 98 machine your now using as a doorstop. You can do this as a regular user, you don't need to be root.

You may need to close and restart Konqueror to see them. KDE sees them right away.

That's all there is.
