On most distros fonts are located in subdirectories in /usr/share/fonts. If you want to install your own true type fonts, make a subdirectory in /usr/share/fonts e.g. msttf, copy your fonts there and then do "mkfontdir && mkfontscale" in that directory. You can also install fonts using the KDE font installer in kcontrol.
