ttmkfdir does not work

The link u suggested had a code like this

# cd /usr/share/fonts/truetype
# ttmkfdir > fonts.scale
# mkfontdir
# chkfontpath -a /usr/share/fonts/truetype
# fc-cache

but when i type ' ttmkfdir ' , it's telling that command not found.

Is there any other version for ttmkfdir in Suse ?

I dont know all this.

Take a look at my first post in this thread. In Suse you can also run YOU and install the patch that fetches and installs MS TTFs.

I'm not a Suse user myself, but a quick search claims that you can dump the fonts into the correct dir and then run "SuSEconfig -module fonts". You'll need to also run "xset fp rehash" to make the fonts available in the current session.

SuSEconfig-Module is not a command

It is not a command .

I also tried to add my custom font directory to the font path by giving xset +fp 'font dir path'
but it is givin an error like

xset: bad font path element (#59), possible causes are:
Directory does not exist or has wrong permissions
Directory missing fonts.dir
Incorrect font server address or syntax


Could you help me out with some more tips?

If you use KDE

Control Centre -> System Administration -> Font Installer

I had read the linf , but it was saying to use the command 'ttmkdir' which is not a command.
I'm not using KDE ,i'm using GNOME.
