Default F9 - Install a Font

-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE-----
Hash: SHA1

I've found numerous guides to installing all of the MS core fonts via a
spec file in F9, but how do I install a single TTF font in Fedora 9?
System -> Preferences -> Look and Feel -> Appearances shows me available
fonts, but I can't find a tool to add a font.

I just put my fonts in ~/.fonts directory. This way, they survive any
upgrades or reinstalls by only restoring my home dir.

Nautilus used to have a fonts:/// access, but now I dont' see it
working.

AFAIK, system fonts are located in /usr/share/fonts, but i didnt try
putting fonts over there. Maybe needs restarting xorg.

Good luck.

The old way's invariably the best. As root;

mkdir /usr/share/fonts/stevesttfonts
cp font.ttf /usr/share/fonts/stevesttfonts
fc-cache -v -f

In Fedora 8 it was like this:

System->Preferences->Look and Feel->Appearance
Fonts->Details...->Go to Fonts Folder

I would love to know how this is meant to work in Fedora 9 now that the
'Go to Fonts Folder' button has disappeared...

This thread reminds me of an unpleasant bug in the KDE Control Center
(https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=251286) which hosed the
X-server for anyone attempting to install fonts "system wide" by
selecting Administrator Mode.

I only mention this because, despite the fact that it continues to
persist in F8, with it being originally filed as arising in F7 the bug's
set to be "officially" closed on June 13.

I don't know the answer, but remember that in F9 no longer uses xfs, so
that may change things.

Closed only because no one bothered to confirm whether the bug still exists
yet or not.

Right, but how do you do it without a terminal window? For instance, it
seems odd that right-clicking on a ttf file in nautilus doesn't have an
'Install font' entry in the context menu.

It must be very depressing to see the huge number of bugs that stick on a
NEEDINFO ticket for years, with no-one bothering to follow them up.

Shrug, folks are busy, I think we can all understand that. In a perfect
world all bugs would be fixed, and everyone would get a magical
fedora-branded pony.

My take as packager, is that if a bug isn't important enough for followup
(esp after NEEDINFO) or to be reported (properly), then it's not important
enough to take the time/effort to look at and fix. I try to focus on the
stuff that folks care about the most, where I see/hear the most (hopefully)
constructive feedback. hrm... I feel a blog coming on...
