TTF fonts on main menus-Ubuntu 9.04

So, I attempt to apply a true-type font for my application font, which should apply it to my main menu bar (Applications, Places, System, Etc.), but it just changes the font to something generic, and only the actual application windows get the font I want. I have tried changing all of the fonts to the same thing, and still did not get the result I wanted. Is there any way I could get a truetype font to display correctly, or a tool that would convert one so it would?I am running Ubuntu 9.04 and using the gnome interface and compiz as my window manager


application, font, true, ttf, type
