Fedora 1 and True-Type font installations
I have a ClickART font CD full of True-Type fonts. (the copyright date is 1995.) I would like to install some of these fonts on a Fedora Core 1 system using Gnome.
I understand that the "easy" way to do this is to open fonts:/// and drag the font files into that window. But it will not let me do that.
I have tried copying the files to a folder on my desktop first and ensuring the permissions are properly set (or, at least, set the same as the permissions for the other font files in the fonts:/// directory), and have tried renaming the font files from husten__.ttf to Hustle.ttf, and then to Hustle (with no extension). But regardless of what I do, it will not let me copy the files into the fonts:/// directory, either by drag-and-drop, or by copy/paste (or cut/paste).
I've also tried copying the .ttf files directly into /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/TTF, which made them available to OpenOffice.org Writer, but not to GIMP, which is where I really need them.
All of this was done as root, for what it's worth.
Any information on what I can do to get these buggers installed would be most appreciated.
