Accessing Fonts on Windows NTFS partiton


Just need to know if it is possible to 'map' somehow to the fonts that I have installed on a Windows NTFS partition, so that I can use them in X Windows applications such as Open Office?

Regards

go into the terminal and type "cat /proc/filesystems" (without quotes of course) and see if ntfs is supported..

if it is, type mkdir /mnt/fonts (or whatever directory you want)
then type mount /dev/hda1 /mnt/fonts -t ntfs -r
change hda1 so that it is the partition that windows is on..

You should be able to go to /mnt/windows/winnt/Fonts (assuming your Windows partition is /mnt/windows and you installed Windows NT (or 2000) to its default folder. Your Windows folder may vary, especially if you use XP.) and find all your True Type Fonts. How you would go about mapping them as Linux fonts, I don't know, but at least we know you know where they're at now.

Thanks all. I now have the fonts useable in Slackware. I also found this link containing some helpful guidance
