Can't install new fonts to Ubuntu 8.04
i've learnt from answers.launchpad.net/ubuntu/faqs and try to install my true type fonts to ubuntu 8.04 by copying myfonts from cdrom to desktop by means of mouse rightclick copy and paste at respective places. i run command sudo mkdir /usr/share/fonts/myfonts sucessfully. but i can't run the command cd /home/username/desktop with no such directory reply. Therefore i can't copy the ttf files on desktop to above new dir myfonts.
Pls help me to complete installing my ttf fonts to Ubuntu.
