I burned a CD with a bunch of ttf (Windows) fonts on it. Then I used the font installer (from config stuff) to add em. You may have to be "root" to do so. Some flavors in Linux will pop-up a box for you to type in the root password. Others will force you to logged in as root. You choose "Add" button. You will have to read the cdrom. When the filer comes up you have to type/select "/mnt/cdrom/" or /mnt/auto/cdrom/" to bring up the fonts on the CD. Sorry about being a little vague, but I did this on several flavors of Linux and there are slight differences of sameness. You can bring in 1 font at a time or a range (with Shift key and click) of fonts. Once you click "Ok" the fonts will be brought in. You preview em by clicking on same. You might have to find the fonts in the list of fonts already installed. If you are satisfied click on install. If you don't want one you brought in, click on it to remove the check mark. If you want to add fonts separated on the CDRom list, use the Ctrl and click.
In a related font matter, I was wondering how to increase the size of some of the dialog fonts and the fonts in the menus, etc in some programs. I know how to do the Look and Feel Desktop fonts and change same in the "Settings" on certain programs.
